Map of Diviematra for 30pm & 7 11.30pm, Wed 7 11.30pm, Thurs Sun noon 2.30pm & 7 11.30pm. Monte Generoso Rack railway and summit facilities closed at time of writing Wmontegeneroso.ch From alongside Capolago train station (274m) at the southern end of Lake Lugano, a rack railway climbs on a slow, scenic route up to MONTE GENEROSO (1704m). Once the restoration works have been completed (reportedly 2016), this trip is worth taking for the views alone; from the summit a short walk above the Vetta (top) station you can see out across a sizeable part of northern Italy, in an amazing panorama. Milan and Turin are both visible; Bellagio on Lake Como is in plain sight, as is Arona on Lake Maggiore and the distinctive pyramidal Matterhorn; and you can even see as far as the mountain pass in the Apennines above Genoa.
