A must see when in the Lugano area. We reached this botanical garden by foot from Monte San Salvatore. It was spectacular, with beautiful gardens and views. On top there is a restaurant in case you arrive at lunch time. A must see!

Must visit if you like botanical gardens. And the small town Carona is beautiful for a small walk. From Carona Post is like 20 min. walk to the park. BWear steady shoes.
