    Caution: If you stumble here, you will find yourself in the next gelateria or espresso bar after a few drops. The 1,624-meter-high summit is right on the border with Switzerland's southern neighbor. By the way, you get a fantastic panorama over Lake Maggiore (Switzerland's lowest point) and the Monte Rosa massif (Switzerland's highest mountains).

    In this sense: Benvenuto su Monte Lema!

    From here, a cable car brings exhausted hikers back down to Miglieglia, from where you can take excellent public transport.

    The green natural terrace of Monte Lema (1624) overlooks the valleys of southern Ticino, Lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore. The impressive scenario even extends to the Graubünden and Bernese Alps, to the peaks of the Valais and extends to the Po Valley as far as Milan.

    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.

    Great panoramic view. Do not linger too long if you want to take the Traversata to Mte. Tamaro, so that you do not miss the bus back to the valley station.

    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
