When it’s crowded, don’t expect incredible views along the way because the passenger car is packed with people and some standing. There are also lots of trees and some buildings blocking the view but every once in a while you can get a glimpse that...More

Had a wonderful 10 days in Como where we attended a friends wedding. We used the funicular railway one evening to have a meal with a view at a restaurant in Brunate, just a short walk from the railway summit. It was a treat to...More

We took a ride on the Funicular (cable car type system that takes you to the top of a mountain). This is like a ski gondola before there were gondolas. The trip takes you to the small village of Brunate. From here you will have...More

We took the fonicolare after a long time waiting in line in a hot July sun. The small brunate city is quite cozy, worth a short trip. However the attraction points, like the lighthouse are not easily accessible by foot. We got to the lighthouse...More

I hiked up from Como but with 30C it would have been better to use the funicular not only down but also up. Even the short way from the station to the lighthouse was sweetening in the weather. When light rain started it felt like...More

Definitely worth it for the view of the lake. Excellent value for money. Didn’t walk to the lighthouse as seemed steep but could see it well anyway. Had a reasonably priced mocktail in a bar with terrace about 10 mins walk from funicular. Great part...More

VERY hot when the outside day is hot (we were there when it was 90 Fahrenheit outside). Most of the bay/Como views up at the funicular top are blocked by rooftops. Perhaps the extra cost (5 to 7.5 euro pp depending on time of day)...More

We were staying in Brunate so this was the perfect way to go between Como and Brunate. If you're staying in Como, it's worth coming up to Brunate for the wonderful views

Was there 2 weeks ago. My mother was on wheel chair, I had no issues getting her around. At the top, still able to push her around.

You can probably seat about 6 per carriage (maybe slightly less in front and rear carriages) and there are about 4 carriages. There is also standing room.

You can also go by ship/boat. There is a stop a few yards from the hotel, it would take 5-10 minutes and it stops near the departure of the funicolare.
