What you'll do

Lake Lugano, or Ceresio, is a glacier lake located between lake Como and Lake Maggiore. It is not very big but very deep, up to 288 meters.

It's beauty, especially at sunset, is breathtaking!
With a 2-hour tour, starting from the center of Lugano, you will be guided to the hidden gems of our lake.

You will experience Villa Favorita (seeable only from the lake) and Villa Heleneum, continue towards the lakeside village of Gandria and cross the lake to the south shore (unreachble by car). On the way you will stop for an aperitivo onboard with selected swiss cheeses and wine or prosecco. Bring your swimsuit and jump into the lake! You can also be dropped off at a typical Grotto (restaurant), where you can enjoy lunch or dinner.

Maurizio was a wonderful captain for the day and showed us all around the lake and filled us in on the history of the area. The wine and cheese spread was fantastic! Definitely recommended.
