We had just came back from Tremezzo and decided to try out the funicular with the kids. It was sunset and we were welcomed with a breathtaking view of the alps. The orange, pink and blue sky hanging above the misty alps, this is certainly one of the most scenic natural landscape we've seen. Picture speaks a thousand words...

For around five euros you're able to get a return journey on this and it's definitely worth the price. Como is a beautiful place to walk around at ground level and the views from the top offer an even better perspective. I was fortunate to go on a clear day and you can see mountains for miles. There is a... More

Lovely little railway, very cheap to ride. Great views all the way up although can be very misty of the Lake and obstructs view. Great surprise on reaching the top that there is another village where people live which is very nice, lovely little cafes and shops. Well worth a visit.

Walked to the funicular station and took the 1100 car up the mountain. Took a short walk around and figured on taking the same car back down. It left before we finished our walk. Had to wait for the 1130 car. Trip takes about 17 minutes. 11 Euro cash for two. Best view is from the front of the car... More

Costs €5 and on the dot. To book your ticket you enter the 'station' a charming cottage style building with so much history around you, you will be totally fascinated. Best ride is the sunset for sure. Also great for kids! Such beautiful views of Como all the way up/down. As soon as you arrive you cannot miss the fantastic... More
