Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Arrived at the bottom of the funicular to monte Bre, he first had to understand how to enter the departure of the funi hall... As for San Salvatore, there are two different trains to take: the first here is automatic, without a ticket, just to wait for the train, which allows to unlock the door opening! Quick ride of a few minutes until the second train where you buy the ticket to go up at the Monte Bre (15 minutes of steep, steep, steep climb!). We took a one-way ticket and returned by bus from Bre Paese until Lugano Center, very easy and convenient. Nice glance at Lugano and San Salvator from the terrace of the restaurant, downhill from the station of arrival. The panoramic restaurant, take the well-marked path at the bottom of the building and follow him to Bre Paese, a pleasant walk to the magnificent landscape of the Italian part of Lake Lugano, walk about an hour, very easy in following the road. Midway through, we can "cut" going down a path in stairs to the village. The walking sticks were welcomed without handrails that hang on! Pretty quaint village of Bre Paese, which a regular bus service serves this somewhat remote location. We went down to the bus not far from the reform, in the city center.

  • Wild mountain offers panoramic views of Lake Lugano and the city and surrounding areas. Very nice place for reflection, relaxation and calm. Offers chairlifts at a nominal price to climb to the top of the mountain through two phases. Definitely recommend a visit at least once in one of this beautiful city visits.

  • During a short break in Lugano, we took advantage of a beautiful sunny day to stroll on nearby Mount Bre. You can go there by car but I recommend the little funicular which is comfortable and characteristic. The view is stunning, the vegetation is lush and we also found a meadow full of wild strawberries that we devoured! If you are in Lugano and you have a few days free, can be a good idea to take a trip on this mountain.
