Cascata del Botto is a gorgeous waterfall near Rovio/Melano in the region Ticino, Switzerland.
Cascata del Botto is a nice daytrip when staying at e beautiful lake of Lago di Lugano. The waterfall is located at the east side south of Lugano. When driving on road 2 (E35) take the exit to Melano centre. Follow the road (via alla Costa) until you reach the church “Chiesa dei Santi Vitale e Agata”. Park the car here.
Take the path going east (via S. Felice). There are little yellow signs for Cascata del Botto. The walk takes approximately 10 minutes (800 m) with a descent of 50 meter.
Cascata del Botto is really nice waterfall in a beautiful environment. I have to check it out next time I am going to Ticino/Switzerland.
