How we came up with these itineraries

They are the result of a collaboration with class 4B of the Primary School of Taverne, Lugano. For one year the nineteen students, together with their teachers Pamela and Elena, organized some adventurous tours discovering the Region of Lugano.

With the help of their friend Zefiro – an imaginary eagle that knocked on their window in search of help – they have gone through 8 itineraries, specifically designed for children, families and schools interested in learning about aspects of the region, from a naturalistic, cultural and historical point of view.
