San Salvatore

Mount San Salvatore: Majestic view of the gulf of Lugano

Also known as the Sugarloaf mountain of Lugano, it is one of the mountains of Lugano reachable by funicular from near the city center and offers a spectacle not to be missed.


One of the most recommended excursions in Lugano is definitely the climb to Monte San Salvatore, from where you can enjoy an incredible 360 ° panorama over the city of Lugano, the lake and the Swiss and Italian Alps.
It can be reached by funicular railway or on foot for the sporty.
Trekking and mountain bike routes start from the top, including the path that leads back to Lugano.

If you like walking, we recommend the route that goes down from San Salvatore to the village of Carona, one of the most picturesque in the Canton, located on a hill above Lugano and from there visit the San Grato Park, a botanical park known for the richest collection of azaleas and rhododendrons in all of Ticino. The park is open all year round and the visit is free of charge.
The walk takes about a couple of hours.

If you book at the Tresa Bay Hotel, in Ponte Tresa, you will receive the Ticino Ticket that allows you to travel free on the train that connects Ponte Tresa to Lugano, with frequent rides, and a discount on the cable car ride.
The Tresa Bay Hotel is the ideal destination to combine relaxation on the lake with excursions to discover the beautiful Ticino. Upon your return, you can enjoy a swim in our relaxing indoor pool, a dip in the lake, not to mention the exquisite delicacies of our chef, in our restaurant with terrace by the lake. The best way to end a day!
