Bioggio – The municipality of Bioggio is home to 3000 inhabitants and is located on the right bank of the Vedeggio river, sheltered from the North winds by gentle hills. Geographically it is part of the low valley of the Vedeggio (Sottoceneri), while politically it is part of Malcantone. Bioggio, which is 315 metres above sea level at a higher elevation than the Vedeggio plane, is a sought-after municipality, as shown by the lack of vacant apartments. In addition to its proximity to the city of Lugano, to the airport, and to the North-South axis, the village also owes its appeal to the 60% tax multiplier (2011). Bioggio is surrounded by lush green countryside; it has a total area of 649 hectares, of which 56% is covered with woodland.
