Monte San Giorgio: a jump in the past

Lugano – Brusino – Monte San Giorgio – Tremona

From Lugano take the boat to Brusino, a characteristic village on Lake Ceresio. From here you can take the cableway to Serpiano, on Monte San Giorgio (UNESCO WHL). We suggest you to stop at the Restaurant Hotel Serpiano to enjoy an excellent coffee on the panoramic terrace. Continue in the direction of Tremona and on the way stop in a typical grotto to discover the tastes of the region. In Tremona you will find the only archaeological park in Ticino. Rent your 3D glasses at the Infopoint and experience a truly unique visit, immersing yourself in the life of the Middle Ages. Return by bus to Mendrisio, continue by train to Lugano.
