The ticket office wasn't taking credit cards when we visited, so make sure to take cash. €5.50 per person return. The services are frequent and quick, and the views over Lake Como from the top are fantastic. Once at the top, there are good panoramic...More

Well I would say this was kind of let down when we could not get out to go down for views. The signs directed us up to find out no views from there. When you get out you should go down instead of up. Both...More

A must go if you're in the City of Como. The Funicolare takes you directly to Brunate with a very high steep but offers breathtaking views of Como. Surely recommended to everyone and tickets for a round trip are cheap.

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.

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.
