The pearl of Lake Lugano
Discover Morcote and the other charming villages as well as breathtaking vistas around Lake Lugano.
The postbus takes you from Lugano to Morcote, a pretty lakeside village with a wonderfully southern atmosphere. Admire the lake while enjoying an ice cream under the palms and soak up the Mediterranean climate.
A stroll around the centre of Lugano is a must: now pedestrianised with a host of interesting shops (PostBus stop: Lugano / Piazza Rezzonico). Take time to relax in the many urban green spaces, such as the Parco Civico public park and exotic Belvedere Gardens on the shores of the lake.
The route continues to Morcote, the pearl of Lake Lugano and a place in which to unwind (PostBus stop: Morcote / Piazza Grande). Visit the Scherrer Park (PostBus stop: Morcote / Parco Scherrer) and admire the enchanting arcades and noble abodes.
The route takes in two interesting tourist attractions: the much-loved Swissminiatur open-air miniature park in Melide, a 1:25 scale reproduction of Switzerland (PostBus stop: Melide / Stazione), and the panoramic viewpoint from Monte San Salvatore (PostBus stop: Paradiso, Stazione FFS: funivia) from where you can enjoy views of the bay of Lugano.

Get to know the whole of Switzerland in just a day with the whole family. The Swiss-Miniature open-air museum provides an overall view of the most significant sights; all nicely done in true-to-life manner, but simply 25 times smaller.
From the San Salvatore summit, visitors enjoy a great panoramic view of Lugano and its impressive surrounding mountains. It can be easily reached by funicular from Lugano-Paradiso (PostBus stop Paradiso, train station FFS: Funivia).
Its privileged location and beautiful Mediterranean-like vegetation make Morcote the pearl of Lake Lugano. Discover the Santa Maria del Sasso church, picturesque terraced cemetery, medieval Torre del Capitano and Parco Scherrer park with delightful mix of sub-tropical plants and arts.
