We paid 23 CHF for a return ticket (approx £15 / €19 - Sept 2012). To get there from Lugano city centre you can take bus no.1 to bus stop Cassarate/ Monte Bré or from the...

  • Funicular from train station

    Lugano Transportation

    The train station is a meaningful walk from the Lake front. In addition, it is very steep. While we enjoyed walking up and down the hill, with a little perspiration involved, there is an alternative by taking the funicular. Sorry, I didn't check prices.
