    On this hike we will take you to Monte Generoso. Here you will hike between the sky and Formaggini to the summit of the 1,700-meter-high mountain, where you will enjoy the breathtaking view and the romantic Alps, where the delicious cheese has been produced for years. The highlight of the tour is a visit to Marisa Clericetti: The Cheese Queen has been producing Formaggini for over 40 years on Alp Clericetti.It starts at the top station of the cog railway, which brings you from Capolago directly to Monte Generoso. Alternatively, you can get off at the Bellavista station and take the last stretch on foot. Right at the beginning of the hike, you will reach the summit, from where you can enjoy the view of Lake Lugano with a clear view. Then you descend on a parallel hiking trail again. You are in Switzerland and sometimes in Italy, because the border between the two countries runs exactly over the Monte Generoso. On the way back from the summit, you pass Alpe Clericetti, where Marisa produces her famous Formaggino. Many even say that no other Formaggino tastes like the Clericetti. So here's your chance to convince yourself.Strengthened you then set out to discover more Alps on Monte Generoso. First, it goes downhill to Alpe Nadigh. Here you can admire old dry stone buildings, which were lovingly built by hand. You'll also find the Nevère, limestone warehouses, unique on Mount Generoso.From Alpe Nadigh you walk on flat paths past the Alpe Genor, which you can see from a distance on the hillside. If you want, you can make a detour and have a close look at it, because Alpe Genor also has old Nevère. Afterwards, the climb back to the top station will take you over the unwooded slopes of the mountain and offer beautiful views for you.At the top station, you can finish off at Fiore di pietra. The building by Ticinese architect Mario Botta is like a flower and therefore has its name. There are restaurants with a panoramic terrace where Marisa's incomparable Formaggino is served. By the way, the rest of Marisas Formaggini will be brought down to Capolago on the cogwheel train in the afternoon - along with tired and contented hikers like you. You can then buy the cheese in stores there.
