“Lugano Monte San Salvatore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

well this is actually a nice spot! if you arrive at the train station in Lugano, just walk down the lovely old town and walk along the lake to the corner called Paradiso! it really deserves its name! this is paradise! there a lots of signs so you can´t miss the cogwheel train up the mountain. just a couple of minutes ride and up there a few steps to get on the highest point and the view is just stunning!! nice restaurant on the top to have a coffee or bring your own stuff with you there is an area for this as well!

pictures in my travel blog on facebook "my life with my backpack" hope to see you there as well,

enjoy traveling fellas :)

take the vernicula to the top and enjoy a lunch and a spectacular view of the city from the viewpoint -- cable car ride is breathtaking and an experience you will not forget --

“What a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Catch the funicular about a ten minute walk uphill from the Paradisio boat dock. The elevation is so high that you change to a second steeper funicular halfway up. The views at the top take in the entire lake and you can even see into Italy.

“Nice View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great Views of lugano lakes from the top of the mountain. You need to take Funicular (cable car) from Lugano-Paradi. If you have swiss pass, there will be discount.

“One of the must when in Lugano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

At nearly 1000 meters you'll overlook the city of Lugano and its twisted lake, and you'll reach the alps by a 360 degree view.
You can get there either on foot from Paradisio or by the funicular.
The restaurant at the top is quite good.
