Enjoy this interesting tour and take the chance to discover the enchanting city of Lugano and the Canton Ticino area, a very mix of cultures: both the Swiss and the Mediterranean ones. We’ll lead you on this exciting path throughout lake mountain and art. While thinking of Swiss, one can’t forget the well renowned chocolate tradition. That’s why the first leg of our tour will be of course the Alprose Chocolate Museum. You’ll learn more about this tasty product, from beginning to end: you’ll discover all the types, the working process and… you’ll eventually could taste it!
Then we’ll move to Cassarate to board the Funicular on Monte Brè, Lugano’s unspoilt peak. Enjoy the wonderful landscape, walk through the small hamlet and discover Brè old-time village.
After lunch, we’ll tour the city of Lugano. So many activities to do and so many highlights to visit…the choice it’s on you! Walk along the scenic lakeside, visit the well-finished Parco Civico, the historic centre with its Cathedral of San Lorenzo and Piazza della Riforma, full of bars and restaurants.
If you’d like to do some shopping, the right place you’re looking for is Via Nassa: all the best fashion brands, a lot of jewellery stores and luxury boutiques.
Lugano has so much to offer and we’re sure you’ll love it!
