I would definitely recommend this funicular -- you have super views of the surrounding area and the price is reasonable. I just wish there were more food options at the top!

Take the funicular to the top and don’t miss the beautiful chapel at the very top of the mountain. Also, you should a glass of wine on the terrace of the restaurant. What a view! Wonderful experience!

Had a great experience visiting Monte San Salvatore. Ticket purchase was easy with a very friendly vendor. The ride is quick and easy too. Once up the top, the vistas are breath-taking and the gelato was delicious. A must-see for visitors to Lugano.
