Have you ever seen the Lake Como from above? Have you ever seen the light-blue of the water, the green of nature and the white of villas and boats are its main colors? Probably not, but thanks to the funicular you can leave the city of Como behind and ascend into heaven. The funicular was developed during the industrial revolution and soon became a symbol of mass tourism. Once you arrived in Brunate you can admire the beautiful Art Nouveau villas and the entire western Alps, the Po Valley and the Apennines, the latter feature that made him known as the “Balcony of the Alps”.
