We walked up from Paradisio so appreciated there being a restaurant at the top. Luckily you only walk beside the funicular for a few 100 metres. Wonderful views from the top and all the way up, as well as a a nature trail at the top. The walk down is quite challenging at first so only for the sure-footed.

Finicular cost ard 24chf (it was special discount) for round trip. But really worth to visit and has a breathtaking view. You can also take finicular just one stop or just up and go by foot back but dress good shoes if you do this

A really beautiful view from the top of lake Lugano. The day was cloudy but still worth a visit. The ride in the cable car was also unique.
