Walking and sailing along Lugano shores

The most complete way to discover a lakeside village is to combine walking and sailing. Thanks to this half day programme you will enjoy a pleasant daily trip to Lugano, strolling along its elegant streets and fashionable squares and finally a nice cruise along the homonymous basin!

Meeting with a private driver in Como. Transfer by car/minivan to Lugano (CH) and meeting with a local licensed tourist guide. A pleasant mini-cruise (1 hour), by public ferry-boat to Melide, Campione d’Italia (once famous fot its lakefront casinò) and Gandria (famous for its olive trees and vineyards), during which you will enjoy the most important lakeside villages and their surroundings. Back to Lugano for a complete walking guided tour to its historical centre. The leading city of the Italian-speaking Swiss Canton of Ticino sprawls along the shores of Lake Lugano luxuriously, embraced by San Salvatore and Brè mounts. It is rich in art: such as the lakefront church dedicated to St. Mary of the Angels (Chiesa Santa Maria degli Angeli), dating back to 1499 and frescoed by Bernardino Luini (Leonardo da Vinci’s pupil) in Renaissance style. Back to Como by car/minivan.
