While some bulk at the very expensive CF 27.00 round trip funicular ride, others can drive or take a bus from downtown.

We walked one hour in the village and got spectacular views of Lake Lugano.

Well worth it

We went up with the funicular from Lugano, short nice ride. Above we walked around and has beautiful views from anywhere. On the way back we walked it down, which was a nice walk trough a neighborhood with nice houses and views till we’re back downtown. On a nice day it’s a lovely way to spend your day and see gorgeous views over the lakes

You are in Switzerland- this is an average place to visit. We took the funicular to the top and had a snack. Not too much to do.

The view was nice but there's not so much to do if you're not hiking. Considering the price for the ride up there, I think this is an average attraction in Lugano. You might love it if you enjoy nature, but some other people might find it just ok.

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.

Great view of Lake Lugano and surrounding villages! Awesome sunset! Funicular ride was fun and very value-for-money.

We took the bus part up the hill and walked the rest using a service road which navigates gently upwards towards the summit. It was certainly more preferable then talking the stepped route from Bre village. Views from the top are magnificent, across Lake Lugano, down to Lugano itself and across to the Alps.

Both Monte Bre and Monte San Salvatore should be visited when in Lugano. Views from both of these mountains are breath taking. Also ride with funicular is nice and good for kids too.

The funicular to the top was enjoyable but there is little to do at the top. The views are worth the trip and there is a small church and some restaurants but not great for walks and you may not spend much time at the top.
