The majestic Swiss mountain San Salvatore, at 1,970 feet, rises into the sky of Lugano, offering a unique perspective of the lake, the Lombardic plain and the magnificent range of the Swiss and Savoy Alps.
The site is enchanting, thanks to its restaurant with a veranda and panoramic terrace, where visitors can combine gastronomic pleasures with relaxing moments.
The funicular, running since 1890, takes passengers up to San Salvatore in 12 minutes and starts in the Lugano suburb of Paradiso. A footpath leads from the intermediate station to a 150-meter-high fixed rope trail.
A 15-minute stroll from the mountain station takes climbers to the peak, where there is a viewing tower, offering a breathtaking view of the region of Lugano, Lake Lugano, Lombardy and the Alps.
