Homepage > Walking on Monte Lema under the moonlight
After dinner, starting at around 21.00 the astronomical observatory will be open for a guided visit.
Depending on the number of guests, participants are divided into two groups, one visits the observatory whilst the other follows the moonlit Insubrico trail, before switching over.
The Insubrico trail is highly evocative because it offers superb views over the two lakes, Lugano and Maggiore. We’ll be guided by the Moon.
The trail does not present particular difficulties. The trip takes around 45 minutes and the trail is 1.6 km long.
In any case you are advised to bring an appropriate pair of shoes. The observatory can be reached by means of a path, just a few minutes’ walk from the restaurant, offering great views over both the north and the south sides.
