    It's always a lovely tour Monte Lema with easy walks or very challenging ... or just to enjoy the view with a nice beer

    The Monte Lema and the view from the top is gorgeous, no doubt. This review applies the Monte Lema cable car, or their employees. While locals verbally be made aware by the ticket seller of the car on it, that the half fare card is valid, this info will remain barred from the German or another language. You will notice this until after the ticket purchase (an adult without half-fare card costs CHF 24 return after all) and you would like to present the half-fare Travelcard later yet, so one is pointed out extremely gruff from the ticket seller of the railway a flyer after checkout. In this info sheet, which you can't see because of the many people before and after checkout, written in bad German, that can be made after the purchase of the tickets no longer claim the half-fare card. It insists however, the ticket seller of the car is so unpleasant that you are looking for the escape to the gondolas. My loved ones from the "Lugano Tourismo": That's why in the last 20 years especially the German-speaking Swiss prefer go to Italy as in Ticino during the holidays. In Italy you will be treated, there is unfortunately becoming increasingly rare in the canton of Ticino, and I say that as Ticino, who grew up in the German-speaking Switzerland. So, to all non Italian speakers in the queue of the cableway of Monte Lema: "Your half fare card get ready!"

    The prospect of the Monte Lema is gorgeous. It is worth to go high even in cloudy weather or to go. Like at any time! The restaurant, however, was not our thing. First, they said they had a problem in the kitchen one one had to wait half an hour to 1200 - no problem. Around 1200, it was 1300 am. Then we opted for ever a Salamino. But they wanted to not serve the first, while yes no need to cook. After some excess stuff talks, they were then but willing to serve two Salamini. Unfortunately, she had cut her and not previously exempt from the skin. The bread was probably even by Friday (we were Monday up!). The next time we take a picnic!

  • Amazing views of Lago di Lugano and Lago Maggiore, the Alps (and the Matterhorn). Highly recommend the hike to Monte Gradiccioli or Tamaro. One of the best in the area.
  • Beautiful views
  • Hike with sun exposure. Especially in the winter months the exhibition is all about. Ability to loop. Wonderful panorama from the Summit
