We arrived in Lugano by bus, getting off at the terminus beside the railway station, which is perched at the top of the city. There is a very pleasant walk down to the cathedral from the station with lovely views of the city and the...More

Climb up to see this cathedral, even if churches are not your thing, because the view from just outside the church is fantastic.

We rode the furnicular with ourFREE transportation pass given to us at our hotel. It covers the buses too and gives discounts on many items. We got off the furnicular and walked around. Lovely church, very quiet with beautiful alter and side alters.

Right in the middle of town, this church is worth a minute as the paintings on the walls and ceiling are excellent. Well preserved, interesting scenes.
