Hi, we have a full day in Lugano in November. Planning to visit Mont Bre followed by Bellinzona. Appreciate any helps to enlighten on the following :
(a) Lugano is between Mont Bre and Bellinzona. As such, we will be travelling to Mont Bre and back to Lugano again then onward to Belllinzona. Is there any alternative that we can make a round trip so that we can reach Bellinzona without passing Lugano? Thought if there is an alternative then it's also a chance to see more beautiful places. Our preference is Lugano - Mt Bre - Belllinzona - Lugano.
(b) We are heading to Locarno to Zermatt the next day. That means we will pass by Bellinzona. Is it advisable to visit Belllinzona on this day instead of the previous day (where we are visiting Mt Bre)? My concern of visiting Bellinzona today is worry that we might spend too much time in Bellinzona and thus delayed the journey to Zermatt. As it is a long journey to Zermatt of 4 hours. Do not wish to reach Zermatt after dark. Is 1-1.5 hours sufficient to visit all castles in Bellinzona?
Thank you for any advices!
