Morcote

— 7 nights
Morcote is a municipality in the Swiss canton of Ticino situated about 10 kilometres from Lugano in the district of Lugano on the shore of Lake Lugano.With its characteristic small alleys, the arcades of old Patrician homes, valuable architectural monuments and its natural beauty, the lakefront position, Morcote is considered "the Pearl of Ceresio".HistoryMorcote is first mentioned historically in 926 as Murcau, which comes from the Latin Morae caput, meaning head of the hill. Attractions like Swissminiatur and Les Voyageurs make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Morcote side-trips: Morbio Inferiore (Santa Maria dei Miracoli & Percorso del Cemento) and Fossil Museum of Monte San Giorgio (in Meride). There's much more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Ferrovia Monte Generoso, walk around Parco San Grato, make a trip to Chiesa di Santa Maria del Sasso, and browse the different shops at Fox Town Factory Stores.
