Guided Excursion Lugano – Morcote


From Lugano, a lovely boat cruise takes you to the ancient fishing village of Morcote, winner of the title of Switzerland's Most Beautiful Village 2016.

Thanks to its characteristic narrow streets, the arcades of the old patrician houses, valuable architectural monuments and lush subtropical vegetation, Morcote is considered the "Pearl of the Ceresio". After having lost yourself in this little corner of paradise, the boat will be waiting for you to return to Lugano.
