This mode of transportation is for me personally a huge challenge. Heights are not my favorite and this funicolare really goes up more than I am comfortable with. However, I kept my eyes closed for the entire trip and once on top. I can say it was worth the ride. The view is spectacular especially at sunset. Don't miss it!!!!!

It was fun to ride up the hill. Was standing in front the train to take picture and the view is amazing. Didn't manage to go up till the light house but manage to have lunch with the amazing view at the outdoor restaurant. The train is just 5.5 Euro per person. I went in December so is very low...

Fun ride up and down. We went in December and it was very cloudy. All we could see at the top was clouds. Not much open in Brunate. Don't know if that was because it's off season or because it was a Sunday. Pizzeria was open at the top but we didn't stop. 5.5 euros per person round trip. Runs... More

Amazing view from Volta's lighthouse. The funicolare is located great in Como, very easy to get to. Totally worth it.

We had just came back from Tremezzo and decided to try out the funicular with the kids. It was sunset and we were welcomed with a breathtaking view of the alps. The orange, pink and blue sky hanging above the misty alps, this is certainly one of the most scenic natural landscape we've seen. Picture speaks a thousand words...

For around five euros you're able to get a return journey on this and it's definitely worth the price. Como is a beautiful place to walk around at ground level and the views from the top offer an even better perspective. I was fortunate to go on a clear day and you can see mountains for miles. There is a... More

The funicolare is very reasonably priced and is very quick! From the top you can go on various walks all with beautiful viewpoints!

Lovely little railway, very cheap to ride. Great views all the way up although can be very misty of the Lake and obstructs view. Great surprise on reaching the top that there is another village where people live which is very nice, lovely little cafes and shops. Well worth a visit.

Walked to the funicular station and took the 1100 car up the mountain. Took a short walk around and figured on taking the same car back down. It left before we finished our walk. Had to wait for the 1130 car. Trip takes about 17 minutes. 11 Euro cash for two. Best view is from the front of the car... More
