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. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Morcote: Morbio Inferiore (Percorso del Cemento, Santa Maria dei Miracoli, &more) and Fossil Museum of Monte San Giorgio (in Meride). The adventure continues: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Ferrovia Monte Generoso, walk around Parco delle Gole della Breggia, admire the natural beauty at Parco San Grato, and don't miss a visit to Chiesa di Santa Maria del Sasso.
