What a view! The lake, the alps...in every direction! Absolutely a must do and it's just a block away from the Holiday Inn. BUT - watch the time, we bought tickets at 1730 and when we arrived at the top the "conductor" advised we were on the last ride of the day and would have 10 minutes before the car descended on its final run f the day. Miss the car and you have a 3.5 hour walk down the hills!! So we rushed around, took a bunch of pictures to enjoy and swore if we ever made it back this place would be first on our list of attractions to enjoy.

We went on the Funicular Railway on an overcast and rainy day. In retrospect, we should have waited for a sunny day as the views would have been beautiful if the sun was out!
There isn't much to do at the top other than visit the church and have a drink or meal at one of the cafes.
Since we were in Como for 10 days, it was something interesting to do. If you're only there for a few days, I would spend the time going to the other lake towns on the boats.

According to advertisment,you can see fm Brunato beatifull picture,but really-you can't see nothing there,only small part of the lake.All over around occupied by private villas,car parkings.City authorities didn't spent any money to fix appropriate square,in order to have opportunity to make foto's and enjoy nice view fm the top.Best option to see local nature views-is fm the small vsls crossing the Como lake.

This is the main attraction - to go up and admire the beauty of the lake and enjoy the scenic views around. Have a cup of coffee there or a glass of wine with fresh air.
