CYCLEWAY TESSERETE – CANOBBIO

Perfect place to go biking with your smaller children. Safe, newly reconstructed beautiful old railway path [Lugano-Tesserete 1909-1967] with a lot of wooden railing bridges. If you go in direction Tesserete – Canobbio the path is slightly downhill. Which is great for small riders. On the way back i had to carry the balance bike thou…. This cycleway is 3.2 km long.

COMANO – VIA CRUCIS

One of the most beautiful views of Lugano waits for you up the hills of Comano.  The Via Crucis ,on the path that leads up from Comano to San Bernardo Hermitage, is a collaboration between architect Camponovo and sculptor Nag Arnodi.   The 14 bronze plates are simply stunning.

Its obvious but i have to mention it, specially if you are pushing a stroller, its a really steep hill. I have to admit there were moments I wish Jesus would be finally crucified.

The reward is worth the trouble. The views are just incredible.

 

SWISSMINIATUR

I’ve read many mixed reviews about this open- air museum and I do have little bit mixed feelings about it myself, but if you have small children or your parents are visiting from abroad it’s a must.

My 2 year old son loved it. There is a little train you can ride around the museum and there are so many fully functional models of trains, boats, funiculars and cable cars that you’re kids are going to be amazed. My mom enjoyed the “walk through” whole Switzerland in one hour and she was astonished by the detail of the miniatures.
