  • After a long but pleasant walk you arrive at an altitude sufficient to see all the Western Alps.

  • Arrived in the square of Brunate through the salitadi 6 minutes by funicular and must visit the Church of Santa Rita, we pruned to climb to the lighthouse, which seem unusual for a lighthouse and Volta for questosiamo up. The walk of almost 2 Km uphill requires comfortable shoes and want to see. You can proceed by road with a route a bit longer but more comfortable, or through a path of cobbles with stairways between trees ebelle villas. After a brief start we desisted because not equipped to shoes and suddenly we see the SHUTTLE that for only 5 Euro return leads to the village of San Maurizio where you can access to the lighthouse. The view from the square is already spectacular but the best is from the lighthouse. So we took the stairs before the elospattacolo lighthouse that was shown was great! A agentile lighthouse keeper there has pushed up facing for 1 euro climb steps and the sky was opened. Beautiful, spectacular with snowy peaks glinting in the Sun, Monterosa.

  • You arrive in Brunate and walk at a time of this Lighthouse where you can enjoy a breathtaking view. Nice the Volta Lighthouse though deserves a better preservation. The view from the small square under the lighthouse and really beautiful and worth a stroll to enjoy this panorama. Recommended to all .... Go there and you'll be glad you did.

  • 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.
  • Best view from above to admire all the city of Como, must see!
  • Best view (both upstairs and downstairs) over Como and its surroundings, including the skyline of Milan, and the snowcapped mountains in the West!
  • 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.
