Excursion San Salvatore

Today we propose you one of the essential excursions during your stay in Lugano: the Monte San Salvatore.

From Hotel Colorado, Monte San Salvatore is easily accessible 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 funicular. Book your room now and enjoy the splendid view from the top of our "Sugar Loaf"!


Monte San Salvatore (912 m a.s.l.), also known as Lugano's "Sugar Loaf", towers over 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 lovers of trekking: the more 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 vantage points offers naturalistic hints walking in nature. We also recommend a walk that in about two hours descends to Carona, a pretty village on the slopes of the mountain known especially for the beautiful Park San Grato which houses countless varieties of azaleas and rhododendrons.

Do not miss this excursion when you are in Lugano! Ask at the reception for any information: we at Colorado are here to help you discover the best of our beautiful region!
