  • Charming region to visit, Monte Tamaro has morphed over time turning from decent ski resort in place with many attractiveness, from Adventure Park at cableway run, from adrenaline to gentle walks in nature and finally the Church of Botta, commissioned by the creator of Monte Tamaro, Egidio Cattaneo, a very particular and tailored to the place.

  • Very nice place, especially when you have company, has great views and has many nice walks and drives, shame about the cost a little high

  • A large park near Lugano. You can climb on foot or by cable car. Worth 25 francs. In the extensive Park Meadows, magnificent views and the chance to ride on a paraglider. We don't dare. Have a bite to eat. Generally a great Park!
