It’s been 12 years since I rode this, but it still has the same charm and thrill. Only a few euros, and you get to see a spectacular view of Lake Como. Have never seen a long line or wait. It’s very efficient and a...More
Fantastic experience. Once at the top there is a long hard walk to the lighthouse. A must do for the view and a lovely bar for a cold drink. You need to be fit to do the walk - done once but wouldn't do it...More

Didn’t walk to the lighthouse as seemed steep but could see it well anyway.
Had a reasonably priced mocktail in a bar with terrace about 10 mins walk from funicular.
