A large square with a children’s playground, a municipal beach, a fitness trail and a promenade along the lake to Bissone complete and enrich the quality of a stay in Melide.

Besides all this, a visit to Swissminiatur, the well-known park of 1 : 25 scale miniatures, permits you to get an idea of the most characteristic and suggestive places in Switzerland in little more than an hour.

Swissminiatur is Switzerland’s largest open-air miniature museum. Located in Melide, on the shores of Lake Lugano, the park is surrounded by majestic mountains including Monte Generoso, San Salvatore and also San Giorgio, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Relax and unwind in a tranquil natural setting.

Other highlights worth mentioning to the traveller passing through Melide are the Chapel of the Crucifix, very near to where the path for Carona starts and the didactic itinerary devoted to the construction of the bridge-dam.

Lugano

Melide is located very close to Lugano, the largest town in the holiday region of Ticino. Lugano is not only Switzerland’s third most important financial centre and a conference, banking and business centre, but also a town of parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings.

With Mediterranean flair, Lugano offers all the advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small town.
