The characteristic village of Brè, whose mount dominates Lugano, is the starting point of this excursion and its spectacular view is the first of many that we'll be encountering.
In comparison to the original itinerary, the shortest one skirts around the most scenic point of this leg: Mount Boglia.
The first part of the excursion leads you to Cima di Fojorina, passing through fascinating limestone landscapes, with a vegetation that is so particular that it is well worth seeing it for yourself.
This itinerary is very attractive and offers you an unforgettable view over the underlying valley.
With the second shortcut, it's also possible to avoid the climb to Mount Bigorio.
