Hello Mala, thanks for joining MySwissAlps! Great that you get to visit Lugano; it's a beautiful city. I'm afraid it's hard to combine all of your plans. But if you leave early, a schedule could look like this:

Alternatively, you could take a boat from Gandria and head for Melide where Swissminiatur ( issminiatur) is located. When heading back by train, you could visit either Monte San Salvatore or explore Lugano. Doing both would be a bit too ambitious I think. You can use the timetable to plan each segment of your journey: metable.

Dear Mala,

Go to Poretti SA, a garment store, the motto of which is della testa ai piedi ( from head to feet). They surely have long raincoats with hoods that will enable you guys to cover everyrhing.

Enjoy the trip!
