The ride itself takes about 5-10 minutes each way, and the return ticket was a reasonable 5.25 Euros. Once up, there are sections along the paths where you can enjoy some stunning panoramic views of Como. There are also plenty of restaurants and gelatarias if you want to take a break. Also, there are lots of signs to point you in the right direction if you're looking for a specific destination. I spent about 3 hours up there but those who are fit and more adventurous can probably spent a full day exploring. It was a great way to spend a day.

For a fee of 5.25€ return, you can take the funicular up the hill to the town of Brunate, a small and quaint village with great views of the lake... although you have to search for them. I assume because of the small area of land, there are a lot of buildings up there which cause an unfortunate problem when trying to find a good lookout spot or a place to take decent photos.

It started raining about 40 minutes after I had reached the top, and I felt that I had spent enough time up there, so proceeded to take the funicular back down. Overall, it was a worthwhile trip but it could have been better.

We were just walking around and found the Funicular.... it was not so crowed so we decided to check the view... I was expecting a bigger free area but at least nearby, there were only restaurants and houses with great views... good in any case... unfortunately didn't have enough time to find more.. so we better go back ...
