Lugano lies in a bay on the northern side of Lake Lugano, surrounded by Mount San Salvatore and Mount Brè, both offering breathtaking views of the town, the lake and the alpine scenery.
The city’s strong Mediterranean flair can be enjoyed with a stroll through the town centre, with its beautiful squares and arcades, along the tree-shaded lake promenade and in the numerous parks with typical sub-tropical plants, like the central Parco Ciani.
Top-rated gastronomy and prizewinning wine production, along with Mediterranean temperatures, splendid views and a packed calendar of events, all invite visitors to this corner of Switzerland –best enjoyed while relaxing in the shade of the ubiquitous palm trees!
