Monte Bre offers a lovely view of Lugano and surroundings, it was definitely worth the price of funicular admission. Take note! If you buy the daily public transportation ticket for the city of Lugano (at any bus stop machine in town) you will get a...More

It’s a nice view from atop of the entire city and lake. They have a nice restaurant and park if you want to spend some time with the kids and walk the trails up there

I read that it’s enough to visit one of the mountain peaks around Lugano, we picked Mt Bre because you can walk to the village of Bre and even to Gandria(1 hour steep hike down) after a visit to the peak. There are two restaurants...More
