    Caution: If you stumble here, you will find yourself after a few pegs in the next gelateria or espresso bar again. The 1,624 meter high summit lies directly on the border to the southern neighbor of Switzerland. By the way, you get here a fantastic panorama over the Lago Maggiore (lowest point of Switzerland) and the Monte Rosa massif (the highest mountains in Switzerland) presented.In this sense: Benvenuto su Monte Lema!From here, a cable car brings exhausted hikers back to the valley to Miglieglia, from where you can excellently depart by public transport.

    Nestled between the lakes of Lugano and Maggiore and the valleys of the Luinese, Mount Lema stands on Italian Switzerland with its 1624 meters and dominates a panorama that embraces the valleys of the Ticino and beyond.

    Wonderful views of the northern part of Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano. The mountain is very windy and is often used for paragliding.

    If you like it a bit quieter, you can get up from Astano on Monte Lema
