Heading out of the city on the road to Morcote are the fairytale gardens of Parco Scherrer
Heading out of the city on the road to Morcote are the fairytale gardens of Parco Scherrer. Lugano's southerly location and comparatively mild climate favour lush vegetation and a sub-tropical ambience. The landscaped terraces – Indian, Oriental and Mediterranean in theme – are adorned with sculptures, fountains, gazebos, temples, tranquil pools and shady arbours. Cedars, Mexican pines, eucalyptus and Chinese magnolia make the air fragrant and sensuous. Gratifying the taste buds, the park's restaurant, Grotto del Parco, serves Italian dishes such as homemade ravioli and fresh fish from the lake.
