Lake Como Funicular Mountain Railway

Operator

FUNICOLARE COMO-BRUNATE + LIGHTHOUSE VOLTIANO

Description

The Lake Como Mountain Railway (Funicolare Como-Brunate and Lighthouse Voltiano) takes passengers from Pazza de Gasperi, near the lake in Como up to Brunate, where passengers can enjoy stunning views over the Lake Como area.

From the top at Brunate there are sverela great walks.

One leads to a lighthouse, the Faro Voltiano in the hamlet San Maurizio (in summertime and winter Sundays this is also accesible by bus). This lighthouse was built in 1927 to commemorate the centenary of the death of Alessandro Volta. The octagonal base which holds up the lantern is 29 metres high. It contains a spiral staircase made up of 143 steps allows visiutors to reach the upper part and take in the stunning views.

On another route, just a few minutes walk away, you arrive at the Pissarottino Fountain with panoramic views over Lake Como and Monte Rosa.

From the top at Brunate you can also walk back down to Como, via 2 paths:

One folows the route of funicular mountain railway, and the other, passes throught the woods passing by the Eremo S. Donato, an ex Convent of the XV century.

Another hiking option is the 3 hours walk from Brunate to Montepiatto, and then down to Torno. At Torno you can take the boat back along the lake to Como.

There are also bus trips up to the lighthouse of San Maurizio, and the CAO.

Every 30 minutes daily 6am until 10:30 pm (midnight in the peak summer months June to mid September)

Did this this evening - nice ride and great views from the top. Wish I'd done it earlier in the day then could have enjoyed some of the walks at the top, would have had better views over the lake and Como (low evening sun and haze spoiled the views a bit) and could have walked back down.
