Monte Bre, Lugano
(4.1/5 based on 420 reviews on the web)
Hike, drive, mountain bike, or take the cable car up to Monte Bre, considered one of the sunniest points in the country, with panoramic views of the nearby lake and surrounding mountains. If you drive to the summit, be prepared for many twists and curves, and be ready to stop for other cars, as the roads are very narrow. The cable car at the base of the mountain is accessible via local bus service. Be sure to check the website for the status of rail operations, since the cable cars can close in inclement weather. Use our Lugano travel itinerary maker to add Monte Bre and other attractions to your Lugano vacation plans.

  • Via funicular (€ 14 return) you will reach the top of the mountain, from where you can enjoy beautiful views over the surrounding area. Disappointing the Café, both in quality and variety
