Monte Generoso
Railway and mountain station will remain closed in 2014 due to reconstruction works

The cogwheel train of Ferrovia Monte Generoso links the village of Capolago, located 274 meters above sea level on Lake Lugano, with the peak of the 1704-meter Monte Generoso via a 40-minute ride through untouched nature. A lovely panoramic view over lakes and mountains awaits you here.

In the very south of Ticino, back in 1890 the cog railway travelled firstly with steam folloed by diesel, whereas today it travels in 40 minutes to the scenic 1700 meter-high mountain electrically. Milano is just 50 kilometres away.
