For the best view of Lugano, hop on to the funicular which will take you to the top of Mount Bre and provide you with some picture-perfect sights of the city, Lake Lugano and beyond. Once you get to the top, there are a few hiking trails that depart from here; you’ll have to pre-book, of course! If you’re not a hiker, there’s another interesting walking trail called the “Art Trail”, which will take you through the village of Bre. It’s a romantic little village that has a walking path embellished with statues.

Before you begin your descend however, grab a bite at one of the restaurants on top and dig in (with a view)…

  • The hike is difficult but once you get to the top, its worth it. The view is spectacular! You feel as if you are on top of the world.

  • Has an amazing panoramic view of the mountains near. There are several ways to reach top. By funicular, car or bus. There is car park at the top of the mountain and several little villages. There is also a walking path after car park to panoramic view point.

  • 50% off if you have the Swiss pass or half fare travel card. Take the funicular up to Monte Bré and go walk down. If you're lucky, you can pick chestnuts along the way :)

  • CHF12.5 with half fare travel card for funicular. Now that I’ve been to both Monte Brè and Monte San Salvatore, I can confirm San Salvatore is better organized, its funicular better timed and streamlined, its observation decks more accessible. On top of Monte Brè, a good view point is a terrace next to the church but blocked, wasted, and marked as private (see pic below). Another good view point is in a restaurant, where you may feel awkward taking pics beside other people’s tables.

  • It’s really heaven on earth
