The funicular to Brunate is pretty steep and comparable to that on the Peak in Hong Kong. It isa not expensive either. At the top there is plenty to see either on foot or take advantage of the ride up to the Lighthouse (7.50 euros...More

A quick ride up the mountain to Bruante from Como with spectacular views. You really don’t realize how high up you are travelling. Interesting when the 2 trains pass each other mid way. Once at the top, take a bunch of pictures and take the...More

We really enjoyed our day travelling to Brunate via the funicolare. We highly recommend this if you are visiting the area it will cost you €5 per person return ticket. The only thing we thought needed improving was upgrading of the actual cabins of the...More

A quick ride (€5.50 round trip) to the top of the mountain. A spectacular view from numerous vantage points! Go early and eat at one of the restaurants that offer terrace seating. The food is “good”, the prices are fair and the view is unparalleled.

I would recommend an early start before the queues begin. Just Euro5.50 per person return. When you get to the top you won't be disappointed with the views over the lake. Try Ristorante Albergo Bellavista for delicious, traditional food with a view. This is the...More

The cable car is efficient and good value at e4.50 each way. Pigra gives a choice of 10 or so marked walks. However, there is very little information and no maps. Would have made all the difference to be able to get some advice. We...More

You can walk around. There are a few shops, snack bars, and restaurants. Some small streets to explore and discover the area. People live up there. Enjoy!

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.
