Monte Brè Tour from Lugano by funicular

20 reviews
From the heart of the city to the sunniest peak of Lugano. You'll enjoy the splendid view and walk through the tiny village of Brè.<br><br>From the city’s heart, you will reach the station in Cassarate by walking, just in time to take the panoramic funicular , enjoy the splendid view of the city centre, gradually expanding at your feet as you reach Lugano’s most uncontaminated summit. <br><br>You will take a stroll through the small village of Brè, where life runs at a slow pace as in the past, taking a look at the typical Ticinese houses, the church and the works of art.<br><br>Attention: until further notice, the route Lugano centro - Cassarate will take place on foot not by boat.

The museum, the view from the top and walking trails on the way back from the mountain to Lake. May have your breakfast in the restaurant with a great view.

first thing to do in Lugano. Please take 2-3 houts to do this excursion. The view from the summit is incredible, certainly the best of the region

We went to San Salvatore for the dinner. The 360° view is amazing and what the best than to take a last dinner here with the sunshine. We suggest to take the mushrooms risotto with a Ticino soda or a Ticino beer.

Exceptional view on the Lake and surrounding cities (Lugano, Melide). After a short ride of ca 15' you will reach the summit. We didn't try it but there is a restaurant at the top with a fantastic terrace. You also have great choice for people who like hiking. We walked downhill to Carabbia where we had a delicous lunch at the well-known Grotto del Pep. It took us 1h45 in total, the first 1h15 being quite steep but enjoyable.

If you have only one day to spend in Lugano then this is a must. from the top of the church you can view the city and region in a 360 grades view.
