A Swiss breath
A unique experience
Lake Ceresio and Lugano (all day)
An extraordinary trip on Lake Lugano, starting from Porto Ceresio. This litte town, surrounded by the green of the Pre-Alps, is well stocked of shops, restaurants, cafè and its lakefront leads directly to the Switzerland.
In front of Porto Ceresio is located Morcote, known as the “Pearl of Ceresio”, characteristic for its little streets and its historical and cultural worth.
Then, we reach the exclusive Campione d’Italia, a little isolated Italian territory enclosed by the Switzerland. Here are situated the famous Casinò planned by Mario Botta, historical monuments and the Church of Madonna del Ghirli with frescos from XIV to XVII century.
Finally, we arrive in Lugano, marvelously laid down on the Ceresio’s shores, with its lakefront. In the middle of the walk, we find the Belvedere garden, which offers an amazing panorama on the gulf, and the Parco Ciani. Strolling through the streets in the city center we bump into: Nassa street, rich of boutiques; Dante square with the shopping center “Manor”; Riforma square, always in great success thanks to the several events that take place during the year; and then even buildings, restaurants and shops… a perfect blend for entertainment, business and tourism.
Do you want to see Lugano from above? Catch the funicular from Paradiso to Mount San Salvatore: now there’s no limits anymore…the sky, the lake, the mountains, a breathtaking panorama and typical restaurants.
