Toward Monte Bar: through hamlets, woods and alpages

You’ll cross pretty hamlets, woods and alpages, where you’ll meet some rare Highland cattle. You’ll be treated to magnificent views and the great taste of local delicacies. The Monte Bar excursion offers a sunny and warm walk. If you think of Lugano and its valleys as an amphitheatre, Monte Bar is its most exclusive seat. It’s there to be enjoyed.
