Today we offer you one of the essential excursions during your stay in Lugano: Monte San Salvatore.
From Hotel Colorado, Monte San Salvatore can be easily reached by bus no. 2, which stops in front of the hotel, free of charge thanks to the Ticino Ticket, which also provides you with a discount on the cable car ride. Book your room now and enjoy the wonderful view from the top of our "Sugar Loaf"!
Monte San Salvatore (912 m a.s.l.), also known as the "Sugar Loaf" of Lugano, stands on Lake Lugano with a 360° view of the surrounding area as far as the Swiss and Italian Alps. Climb to the roof of the church to enjoy this majestic panoramic view.
There are several paths that wind from the top of the mountain for trekking lovers: the most experienced sportsmen can try their hand at climbing along the "via ferrata", while families and children follow the nature trail that, in addition to leading to some panoramic points, offers naturalistic hints while walking in nature. Also recommended is the walk that in about two hours descends to Carona, a pretty village on the slopes of the mountain known especially for the wonderful park San Grato which houses countless varieties of azaleas and rhododendrons.
