Lago Di Lugano (lake Lugano) – the magic between Switzerland and Italy.
Living in Porlezza allows you to enjoy both Italy and Switzerland at the same time. The town’s unspoiled surrounding area is rich with outdoor activities (available in both countries). Travelers can enjoy trekking, excursions with mountain biking on the surrounding mountains, horseback riding, golfing or simply walk peacefully amidst the picturesque old towns, scattered between the mountains. Lake Como is a short traveling distance (only 12 kms), and tourists can enjoy a tour, either sailing or by car, around the ancient towns to absorb the medieval charm.
In Switzerland, we highly recommend visiting the beautiful elegant city of Lugano (situated only 15 kms from Porlezza) to stroll along the lovely wide boulevard along the lake, the grand marina, the museums, the fashionable posh boutiques, fancy cafes, gourmet restaurants and even visit the marvelous casino. Lugano’s squares are bustling with liveliness, colorful and vibrant stalls, street performances, art and history. Another worldwide known attraction in Lugano is the famous “Swiss Miniature Village” – A unique park with miniature models of Switzerland’s sights and attractions – A unique experience for children and adults alike.
