Monte Bre, Lugano

4.4
Mountain · Lookout
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.

  • If you are driving - worth a visit. Once parked (near the restaurant), you may walk the mountain and enjoy the wonderful views. Then, drive down to Bre village, where you can walk its narrow streets.
  • Nice Spot in Lugano (Ticino), you can go there, with car, bicycle, funicolare, bus....more and more solutions for this fantastic Spot. Take your time in Lugano they have some other nice Spot arround. Lugano is a nice city South Ticino. the lake is huge and full of nice "grotto" tradition Ticino restaurant. Some are arround the lake, only with a boat you can go there, or you rent one or they have some taxi boat service in Lugano
