At the “Carona, Paese” stop, take a quick look around the picturesque village and the San Grato botanic gardens before setting off on a delightful, easy walk to Morcote.

After a succession of splendid panoramic views and equally magnificent forests, you will reach Alpe Vicania, where visitors can hold and stroke the animals. From here, the path leading to Morcote is made up of a series of steps. There are said to be over a thousand of them! Come and see for yourself!

Once you get to Morcote, on the shores of the lake, the Mediterranean beauty of the setting will soon help you to forget all the hard work needed to get there. To round off the day, Parco Scherrer, also known as the “Garden of Wonders”, is well worth a visit.

The most convenient way to make the return journey is by Postbus from the “Morcote, Piazza Grande” or “Morcote, Parco Scherrer” stop.
