Lugano Things to Do: 138 reviews and 303 photos


Take the road direction Rivera and when you reach the highway entrance, there you are.
In the middle of a big field you will see a cable car station that will bring you right on top of Monte Tamaro.

A spectacular trip changing between civilization and wild valleys.
The pre alpine trip Lema-Tamaro, practicable on both ways, is one of the most beautiful excursions of the Swiss pre Alps, on the border between Ticino and Italy. The spectacular view you enjoy during this walk sweeps through the Lago Maggiore, the Centovalli, the Valle Maggia, the Val Verzasca and Locarno to Bellinzona in the North, while on the south the view opens to Lugano, with his valleys and on the lake. And the highlights are the Alps in the background with Monte Rosa and Matterhorn.
