Publibike – Bike Sharing – Lugano – Paradiso – Lugano

City Itinerary - Pedal, smile and take a photo!

Discover the most beautiful corners of Lugano on two wheels and take a picture in the panoramic points of the city.

Set out from Piazza Manzoni and ride towards Paradiso; allow yourself a few minutes at the waterjet to admire the stunning views. Cycle along the lakeside promenade in the other direction and you can stop off at Lido Riva Caccia for a relaxing break.

Once you’re back on your bike, head to the Belvedere Gardens, where you’ll surely notice the impressive LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura building in stunning Piazza Bernardino Luini. At this point, we recommend you visit the Convent and the Santa Maria degli Angioli Church which houses a masterpiece by the famous artist, Bernardino Luini.

Continuing up to Debarcadero, you can stop to admire a picture perfect scene, comprising boats, pedalos and the impressive Monte San Salvatore in the background. Just a bit further, at Rivetta Tell, the statue of William Tell awaits you for a selfie.

Cycle through the nearby gate and you’ll discover the wonderful Parco Ciani and the point where the Cassarate river flows into the lake [la Foce], a superb beach offering views over the city. Continue through the park until you reach the side exit, passing by historic Villa Ciani: cross the road and you’ll arrive at the famous sculpture by Igor Mitoraj in Piazza Independenza; take the city streets all the way to Piazza Manzoni.
