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.
Come and see the exquisite panorama and discover romantic hideaways. Visit the region's gorgeous parks, museums or let the Ticinese sun warm your mountain excursion or climb. You can choose from 30 different cruises aboard our ships, where you can enjoy a blissful meal or savour famous Vanini pastries. From April 2001, slip into the supreme comfort of our San Gottardo, the latest vessel to join our fleet on Lake Lugano.
The church, which was originally part of a Franciscan monastery, is home to Switzerland's most famous Renaissance fresco. It covers the whole wall of the nave. The "Passion and and Crucifixion of Christ" is defined by great expressiveness and vividness of the individual scenes.
