    There's this place called the Verzasca Valley in Ticino which is about 45mins drive from Lugano (if I remember correctly). It's a very beautiful valley with a very nice clear stream. There, you can also find the famous Roman bridge which is a landmark for that area. It's a good place to spend a peaceful afternoon with nature. If you don't mind the cold water, jump in the stream for a swim!

    just a cool place to hang out after a busy day, a long walk or rude experiences on our torture machine . . . ;- )

    just slow down . . .

    Snowy Mountains behind growing palm trees

    by DionysosCH65 Written Feb 16, 2004

    From Lugano on you can be in less than an hour in the snowy alps. Generally the palm trees of Lugano have to bear snow on their top during a week each winter . . .

    More houses in Carona/Ciona. I think this place was selling statues and other similar things - it didn't look like a store from the outside!

    Would you have guessed, Ticino also has snow! This is quaint Lake Origlio, just two steps from where I live, on a late afternoon in winter.

    This is one of my favourite outlooks not far from Lugano, Serpiano on Mount San Giorgio. The view is breathtaking, especially with the warm light of a late afternoon.
