Though short, this stretch of the tour really makes an impression. It’s worth stopping as often as possible to admire Ticino’s beauty in all its glory.


In the former fishing village of Morcote, for instance, with its shady arcades and lakefront cafes, or maybe at the sublime Scherrer Park shortly after the exit to the village. From Cadepiano, the road leads up to Agra and a pretty church surrounded by vineyards. The view is phenomenal. Just after Montagnola, the adoptive home of Hermann Hesse, the Church of Sant’Abbondio provides a taste of Tuscany and a wonderful end to this romantic route.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
