Hike, drive, mountain bike, or take the cable car up to Monte Bre, considered one of the sunniest points in the country, with panoramic views of the nearby lake and surrounding mountains. If you drive to the summit, be prepared for many twists and curves, and be ready to stop for other cars, as the roads are very narrow. The cable car at the base of the mountain is accessible via local bus service. Be sure to check the website for the status of rail operations, since the cable cars can close in inclement weather.

Monte Bre Reviews
Wenn man den Kinderwagen aufs kleinste zusammenfalten muss um ihn durch dein schales Drehkreuz zu zwängen, spätestens da, hätte man checken müssen, dass man besser etwas anderes gesucht hätte. 1.

Monte Bré is beautiful in itself and in some places you also have a view. All well and good, but with strollers you're just a little next to it.

"The box is full," the sheepman said, leaving us waiting in line for half an hour. Only 30% with Ticino ticket, that would be nicer. The railway is more than 100 years old. Somehow, attitudes towards families with young children (and, of course, the disabled) seem to have stopped somewhere with those in charge. What a pity. defective.

The restaurants are ok, but just as they are at such special vantage points.
Beautiful views, we took the funicular to the top and walked down the olive grove path, there is a lot of steps down and the path is marked very well. There is no price for the spectacular view to be seen.
The hike is difficult but once you get to the top, its worth it. The view is spectacular! You feel as if you are on top of the world.
