Monte Brè Funicular
For a bird's-eye view of Lugano and the lake, head for the hills. The funicular from Cassarate (walk or take bus 1 from central Lugano) scales Monte Brè (925m). From Cassarate, a first funicular takes you to Suvigliana (free up, Sfr1.80 down) to connect with the main funicular. Or take bus No 12 from the main post office to Brè village and walk about 20 minutes.
