Full-sized wonders to miniature marvels

Lugano - Monte Brè - Swissminiatur The excursion includes a visit to the city center, a visit to the Monte Brè and the boat ride to Swissminiatur theme park.

From large to small-scale, and from small-scale to miniature, this is a variable scale excursion. After a relaxing stroll to admire the city’s fine buildings, Via Nassa’s boutiques and the flower beds in Parco Ciani, take the funicular up to Monte Bré. From here you can admire the same buildings you visited earlier, shrunk by the distance. Afterwards, while returning to Lugano by boat, disembark at Swissminiatur in Melide, a theme park which is internationally renowned for its delightful miniature buildings reproducing Switzerland’s most important architectural monuments.

The ideal programme:
