Excursions and leisure time in Lugano and its surroundings
The Lake of Lugano wins the first prize as the most beautiful Swiss destination and offers a lot of possibilities to plan your leisure time. The Mediterranean flair together with the harmonious combination of water and mountains amazes and enchants thousands of tourists each year. Our recommendation: a boat trip from Lugano to the picturesque villages of Gandria or Morcote or to Melide to visit Swissminiatur.
- Swissminiatur - all of Switzerland in one hour
- Gandria - authentic since 100 years
- Morcote – a little fishing village rich in culture
