    We have gone this path Dell ' olivio Gandria out. He is very picturesque and is about 4 km to Castagnola. Continue until Cassarate, where we went back with the ship to Gandria.

    This year we had for the first time the tour, organized by the Office for tourism in Lugano (cost/person CHF10, inclusive of return from Gandria to Lugano by boat), to walk the entire path of olives from Castagnola to Gandria (length: about Km 3.7). The walk is wonderful. because the route runs comfortably with slight slopes along the coast to the East of Lake Lugano between beautiful olive trees (not many indeed, but very well looked after and "documented" in history and botany by numerous panels), agaves majestic, colorful flowers, occasionally in the perfume of figs, in a silence suited to relaxation and contemplation landscaping (softened by courteous sober exchanges greetings with visitors) with beautiful openings on the Lake and the green hills the opposite shore. The walk is suitable for children and the elderly (as well as walking dogs) and ends in the historic village of Gandria, also dear to the artists, where you can also satisfy your dining needs. To return you can retrace the trail on foot or take the ferry line, or use the bus or car.

Where to stay in Lugano

Picturesque Lugano is known for its deep blue bay and the palm tree-lined waterfront promenade--so it only makes sense to stay close to the heart of the city, the lake. Surrounding the bay are a number of mid-range to high-priced hotels and quaint bed and breakfasts. With such an emphasis on the lake, most of the high-rise hotels have arranged their rooms and balconies in such a way that everyone has a lake view. These waterfront hotels put Lugano a step above its neighboring contenders, outbidding them in style, natural beauty, and sophistication.
