To reach the summit of Monte Generoso there are several options including a travel from Lugano to Capolago by train or by boat. From Capolago the cogwheel railway has been taking passengers to the summit since 1890, where it is possible to admire the famous Fiore di Pietra (Stone Flower), built by architect Mario Botta in 2017. After a lunch break at the restaurant, it is possible to visit the Grotta dell’Orso, with finds of over 800 bears extinct 60,000 years ago, or stop at the Astronomic Observatory to look at the starry sky.
