Driving from Lugano to Menaggio

Hello fellow travellers,

I am planning to drive to Menaggio. The route suggested is from Lugano to Menaggio but whatever I see online says that route is quite risky to drive. I found a video too.

Seems quite doable to me but I wanted to get advice from seasoned travellers. If you know other routes, please let me know too

Thank you and cheers

Re: Driving from Lugano to Menaggio

you mean with the bycicle? yeah the part on the lake is not very safe, avoid rush hour early morning and afternoon as thousands of italian crossborder workers go through there every day and cut corners, and there are buses that have to cross with each other.
Use google maps streetview if you wanna see it better.

There's something wrong with the video anyway. Use google maps streetview if you wanna see it better.
Which bicycle is this?

I am planning to go there tomorrow afternoon around 1400 - 1500 by car. I hope it should be ok. The streetview looks quite ok.

Re: Driving from Lugano to Menaggio

it's a state road, yes it's narrow in some points but not unlike cantonal roads in ticino, cars can cross everywhere.
at 14h it should be a relaxing drive, there will be mostly tourists i guess.
