Given that a sunny Sunday is ahead of us, let's have a Swiss hike with rewarding views, from Melide to Morcote via Carona.

Hike features Protected content of elevation gain and should take around 3,5 hours. Highlights include Carona, village of artists, the botanic gardens in S.Grato and the architectural wonders in Morcote, which include the Madonna del Sasso church, perched on a cliff. Will we manage to endure the Protected content that are needed to reach Morcote?

The path is well described on:
