If you happen to be in Como, you can not miss taking the funicular up to Brunate. It's only a short trip but you will be rewarded with magnificent views.

You can't visit Como and not going up on the cable car. Amazing view, only 5 Euros for the round trip and it's really worth it

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.
