“Breathtaking view from the Top!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

After a fun Cog Rail ride up to the station, we had to walk a couple of kilometers to reach a place where the view was to say the least Stunning.
Its a MUST see.

Tip for first timers:
Tickets are available at the next stop, watch out for the instructions.

“Excellent view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Monte Bre is amazing. We chose low cost version to get at the top - by bus no 12 to Bre Paese and about 15 minutes walk to the top.
But this place was worth it. The views are amazing, Lugano looks great, like the Alps.

“A must - drive all the way to the top or take the funicular for a spectacular view of Lake Lugano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We rove all the way to the top of Mt. Bre. The views were amazing from all angles of the mountain. We stopped by the church and he a drink at the Grotto and then continued our way up.
