Ferrovia Monte Generoso

Monte Generoso and Valle di Muggio

A truly Generous mountain. Why? Because from its summit you can enjoy
a stunning 360° view, from the lakes region itself, to the Po Valley and Milan,
across to the jewels of the Alps: the Matterhorn, Jungfrau, Gotthard and Monte Rosa.

What more could you want? Come on, isn’t it time you conquered it?

At its summit the Fiore di pietra has blossomed: a futuristic structure
designed by architect Mario Botta. Discover this wonder, reaching the top with the historic cogwheel train of the Monte Generoso railway.

It’s an experience guaranteed to delight visitors of all ages!

Why not try one of the excursions that start from Rovio, Mendrisio, Castel San Pietro, and the Valle di Muggio. What awaits are idyllic, picturesque villages that seem to have halted time’s relentless march, with histories explored in wonderful detail at the ethnographic museum. 

Afterwards, why not travel further back in time and enjoy the stunning natural wonders of the geology on display at the Gole della Breggia Geopark. You’ll love it!
