Ascent Trip ReportOn holiday with the family in Lugano, took the first funicular up san salvatore to avoid the crowds. From the top station at 884m it´s only a 10 minute walk to the church on the summit with a recalcitrant 3 year old, but the views are magnificent and more than compensated for the moaning..
Ringed by lakes and extremely steep (the funicular hits 61% gradient on the ascent), there are truly few better viewpoints in southern Ticino.
