Ceresio (Lago di Lugano)
Ponte Tresa

To the west, Lake Lugano forms a kind of inland lake with a double city. On the Italian side, Lavena Ponte Tresa is separated from the Swiss town by a bridge that spans the Tresa, a very special river that links Lake Lugano to Lake Maggiore. With a difference in height of 78m between Ponte Tresa and Luino, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, the Tresa discharges the overflow of Lake Lugano and, along its course, the Creva dam produces hydroelectric power and regulates the flow of water to limit the danger of flooding. The road along the Tresa in Italian territory offers beautiful views... but there is no place to stop and shoot panoramas.
