Strolling through Mendrisio

Lugano – Mendrisio Between Monte Generoso and Monte San Giorgio (Unesco World Heritage) there are varied hiking trails that lead through the sun-drenched vineyards.

From the train station of Mendrisio walk towards the historical centre. You can rent audioguides (free of charge) from the Regional Tourist Organisation to discover the hidden corners of a town that is called “magnificent”. We suggest you to visit the Art Museum, which always hosts interesting exhibitions. A lunch at the typical wine cellars will recharge your batteries for an afternoon of crazy shopping at FoxTown, the largest outlet in Europe. From San Martino train station take the train towards Lugano and, before returning to the city, enjoy a drink at Lido Maroggia and enjoy a moment of relaxation on the shores of Lake Ceresio.
