An afternoon at the Lido
The appeal of the communal Lido of Riva San Vitale is immediately obvious. A place to fall in love with at first sight, the Lido owes its unique charm to the naturally formed, picture perfect gulf.
This oasis is one of the village’s treasures.
In summer, there is nothing nicer than basking in the sunshine, enjoying the special tranquillity of this charming spot.
As well as sunbathing, guests are invited to make use of the spacious changing rooms, showers, rest rooms and well-stocked bar. Young and old can enjoy a refreshing swim or simply spend time admiring the view from the platform.
Simply put: the municipal Lido of Riva San Vitale is the destination of choice.
Families, youngsters and the elderly... the variety of facilities at the Lido means that there is something for everyone. A playground, springboard, bar and a soft grassy area are all found in the picturesque setting of Lake Lugano.
The playground is open all year round.
The Lido has been described in the newspaper Sonntag Zeitung as one of Switzerland’s most beautiful public swimming pools.
Getting there could not be easier: from the car parks in Via Vela (school zone) it is just a few moments’ walk to the Lido.
Opening hours (park and pool): last weekend in May to the first weekend in September, from 9.30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Outside this period, the Lido remains open as a public park.
