This superb panorama mountain is one of Lugano's landmarks. Monte San Salvatore not only offers splendid views on all sides but also has numerous hiking trails. The tour from the summit through chestnut forests along the lake to Morcote is a classic. Getting to the top is not a problem as the funicular railway takes only 12 minutes to ascend 909 metres from Lugano-Paradiso.
Just getting there is already a breathtaking experience - on Griesalp, the starting point of the two day tour, the steepest post bus route in Europe battles its way upwards.
