Tour description

An easy tour which explores the hilly, pre-alpine region of the Mendrisiotto. We leave from Mendrisio and follow the mainly flat path past Genestrerio and along the border with Italy until Gaggiolo. The first climb starts here among the vines as far as San Pietro. Under Clivio, we cross the border into Italy and take the road up to Saltrio, then return into Switzerland at Arzo and follow another small climb to Tremona. Then a steep descent on a mule track takes us to Rancate, from where a minor road takes us back to Mendrisio.
