  • The views are worth the effort to get there. As a 70 year old smoker I struggled a bit on the way up the cobbled route but I got there in about 40 minutes. I wish I had worn sturdier shoes or boots. W...  read more »
  • Very disappointing. It's a tough 30 minute trek on a steep and increasingly poorly maintained stony path to get to the lighthouse, which closes at 16:30 or at any time there is bad weather. There are ...  read more »
  • I went yesterday with my boyfriend. To get to the road, especially in the last piece, is very rough but worth it. It takes 30/40 minutes by funicular. Unfortunately we get there it was closed! We admired the same beautiful scenery!

  • This is one of those places that you enjoy reach after a wonderful walk in the woods. The sight from this tower (or just from the entrance if you prefer skipping the stairs) is a rewarding experience: in a bright day it's easy to see as far as Milan' skyline. I'd recommend bringing water and a couple of sandwiches so you can sit and relax
  • Loved the view from high up above Lake Como, stunning! Probably best a sunset if possible. The walk up from the funicular is quite steep so where good shoes. There are benches at the top to rest and a lovely restaurant just down from the lookout point called Polenta, serves traditional food.
  • An hour or so walk from the top of the funiculare. Good spot for some photos. Didn't pay to go in the top of the tower because the view from the bottom was good enough.
  • Spectacular sightseeing of Como and its lake. You can reach the lighthouse using the old-but-renewed funicular (that starts in Piazza Alcide de Gasperi, in Como) and then walking about 10 minutes.
  • Spectacular sightseeing of Como and its lake. it is worth the time here
