Depart from Milan or Bergamo by bus towards the beauties of the Canton of Ticino. After two hours of travel, reach the first stop, the Alprose Chocolate Factory. Begin your day on a sweet note by enjoying some leisure time indoors and satisfying your cocoa cravings by shopping at their store. Afterward, travel to Lugano where you can relax with a walk along the lake and, if you want, have lunch in one of the restaurants in the area. Feel the closeness to Italy in the local gastronomy. After about 2.5 hours in Lugano, get back on the bus to move to the last stop of the day, Bellinzona. Explore the medieval village famous for its three World Heritage castles for 2.5 hours. Visit the external part of Castel Grande, an imposing manor that dominates the city. Enjoy some free time to walk around the historic center and take photographs of its most fascinating views. After the visit, embark on a 3-hour-long drive to return to the meeting point.
