It’s a nice Mountain View. Breathtaking Plan your trip back if you are riding the bus, since sometimes the cable car got really busy w a long line up. We miss our original bus and the next bus is an hour away.

Very beautiful view from the Piani D'Erna worth of efforts to get there. In my opinion MUST SEE being in Como.

if you have a couple of hours at your disposal, do take the cable car! the scenery is breathtaking, you can walk around the village and discover beautiful villas, and also, hidden in the dense vegetation, cosy bars with amazing overview of the lake.

Get on this and enjoy a proper overview of the least known area surrounding Lake Como. A proper breathtaking experience. Remember that many Italians walk up this mountain and do so well into their later years. Wow!
