“Italian balcony”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

This is one of the most wonderful sights of the alpes il Lombardia. It is important to choose the correct day but it is clearly visible the Lugano lake.. Lago maggiore... Monte rosa and in very clear day also monviso mountain. Really incredible.. You can get from Italy or from Switzerland going up through the Val Mara.

“Balcone d'italia”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

In a sunny day, you can see up to Milan. Take your camera with you, or you will really miss it! And in proximity there is also a very beautiful playground.... in Swiss Land...

“Worth the climb”
Reviewed 30 December 2012

It's a 45 minutes drive from the lake shore in Switzerland, if you come from the south, more or less the same if you come from the Como lake in the east, but anyway when you are up there you are rewarded with stunning views. The traffic signs are a bit confusing as often happens in Italy, and we were first directioned to another belvedere, which has a restaurant, but that it's not Sighignola. Once in the right one, you can see Lugano at your feet if you look west, and the plains of Lombardy if you look south. 5 stars site. A "must" if you are by the Ticino canton in Switzerland or by the lakes region in Italy.

“An extraordinary bird-eye view”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

A must visit, although difficult to climb up with car (1.300 m altitude). Worth paid the 30 minutes drive. See at Google Earth 3D panoramic views to get a taste of what a beautiful site it is.
