Create an itinerary including Monte Bre
Hike, drive, mountain bike, or take the cable car up to Monte Bre, considered one of the sunniest points in the country, with panoramic views of the nearby lake and surrounding mountains. If you drive to the summit, be prepared for many twists and curves, and be ready to stop for other cars, as the roads are very narrow. The cable car at the base of the mountain is accessible via local bus service. Be sure to check the website for the status of rail operations, since the cable cars can close in inclement weather. Make Monte Bre a centerpiece of your Lugano vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Lugano holiday builder website.

  • Great views, nice not very long or challenging hike, pleasant drink at the top and a quick ride down with the cable car. Can also drive nearly all the way to the top.

  • The view is insane beautiful but the restaurant was just trash…
  • Amazing view, specially if you go there in April or March there is always fog with beautiful view of the lake.
