Beautiful views over Como! Quick trip and worth the €6 even if you only stay an hour or so. There's a few places to wander and a cafe and a church to visit. Highly recommended

The funicolare-train or whatever it is was fast and easy way to get up to the mountains surrounding Como. Price was not bad. The view from the up was awesome, I strongly recommend!!

This takes you nearly a km above Como with great views, basic food is available at the top, although there is a better restaurant 50 meters down from the exit with a nice but small terrace. I would not bother to join a long queue...More
