Lugano: Guided Walking Tour to Gandria with Boat Cruise

1. Lugano: Guided Walking Tour to Gandria with Boat Cruise

A visit to Lugano may not be defined as such if you don't include Gandria, a romantic and picturesque place. In this magic and incredibly charming location, take a dive into the past and discover how people used to live once upon a time. In the company of a guide, walk to Gandria and while you leisurely stroll up and down the village streets, a boat will be waiting for you to bring you back to Lugano. Gandria is a romantic locality nestled on the shores of Lake Ceresio that may be reached either by land or by the lake. The town’s center is closed to traffic and is an oasis of peace with its picturesque tiny streets and stairs that offer glimpses of great views and gorgeous landscapes. At the center of the town see the 16th-century church of San Vigilio with its outstanding baroque interior and the high late-medieval belfry. On the lake opposite Gandria, discover the Museum of Swiss Customs. Along the trail from Cantine di Gandria to Caprino, there are several grotti, an ideal place to take shelter from the heat and to have the opportunity of getting a taste of the typical Ticinese cuisine (costs not included).

It was a nice day with clear skies to do some hiking. The guide was professional and explained the history of Gandria and the culture in different languages to cater to everyone in the group. Tip: make sure to wear comfortable shoes, and for this time of the year take a light jacket with you. We started at late morning ( 10am) and it was still a little bit chilly.

Very interesting and friendly activity, especially if Marco is the guide. We had a great time relaxing and discovered beautiful places in Ticino

Yes, I really liked it, it was wonderful, our guide was very kind, attentive, perfect.
