“Monte San Salvatore - marvelous views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

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.

Nice funicolare, nice panorama, but the restaurant is not special.
Moreover the weather are really unfriendly.

“This is so scary but so good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

If you are scared of heights then it is pretty scary, but this cable car is amazing especially seeing that it is 124 years since it was built (how did they do it?). The first section to about a third of the way up the mountain is steep enough, but when you change cable cars at that point, it becomes precipitously steep and the views are unbelievable. When you reach the top, there is a path that you can walk right to the very top and this would have to be one of the great views of the world, utterly breathtaking.

“Just wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

This was just one of the beautiful places we've been to.

Would recommend it to anyone. We had our own car and parked it in their parking area.

You can spend atleast 3 to 4 hours in the mountain. The you can look around Lugano considering the parking is free with the attraction ticket.

Wonderful views of the Alps and lake Lugano as well as other lakes around. Nice restaurant on top - you can relax and enjoy the view while having a nice drink and/or meal.
