A splendid lido

One of Switzerland’s 10 most beautiful lidos” according to SonntagsZeitung, lido Riva San Vitale is located between the Unesco site Monte San Giorgio and the Lugano lake. It’s a jewel of nature open all year round along with the neighbouring Miralago public park. The summer season starts in the first half of the month of June and ends at the end of August.

With its nice and relaxed atmosphere lido Riva San Vitale is not only family-friendly but it’s the perfect destination for all those who love going to the lakeside. It’s the ideal place to spend lazy dummer days in the shadows of tall plane trees. Well-loved by the locals, it’s becoming increasingly popular among tourists. Diving into the clear waters of the Lugano lake will be one of your most cherished summer memories.
