Lugano station - the escalators lead down to the main station hall that has access to the funicular

Lugano (Lugano)

Lugano is in Switzerland and not Italy, so if you're taking the train from Italy you will need to have your passport with you.

A funicular links Lugano station to the town centre.

There is direct access to this funicular from the passage way thay runs beneath the platforms.
If your train arrives at platform/track 1, you will need to descend to the lower level in order to access the funicular.
