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.

  • We went to the funicular (a definite exaggerated price, stay in the car if you can) the view is wonderful, too bad the visibility that day. We also saw a deer!

  • Risen to Brè paese to accompany a friend at home, we decide to go to the Summit where there is the restaurant. The road is a bit rough, you are a bit careful, but the panoramic view over Lugano in a late evening (it was around midnight) with a starry sky, the effort will pay off. I highly recommend you climb to the top in the evening or during the day but when the sky is clear.
