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.

Take the train to Mendrisio to visit the historical centre and discover the hidden corners of a town that is called “magnificent”. A lunch at the typical wine cellars will recharge your batteries for an afternoon of crazy shopping at Fox- Town. Before returning to Lugano, stop for an aperitif by the lake and enjoy a moment of relaxation on the shores of Lake Ceresio.
