Review of Lido di Lugano

Lido di Lugano
Ranked #12 of 73 things to do in Lugano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2013

The is a main square with buildings covered in cascading flower boxes. On certain days they hold open air markets, festivals & cinema, otherwise just sit at a cafe with an espresso and soak it all in. In this area of Switzerland, the variety of languages you'll hear are amazing!

Lugano is a very chilled city, and the lido just epitomises this. There are many places to sit both in the sun and shade (grassy, beach etc) both of which give easy access to the lake and the swimming pools. The lake is beautiful, stretching out into the mountains, however it can be a little dirty - I suppose this depends on the day. The swimming pool was lovely and clean, with lanes set aside for people wanting to swim lengths, and an area for 'fun swimming.' There are also diving blocks. There is also a kids pool, where there are diving boards of about 10-15m. There are also cafes for refreshment. As it's all open air, the atmosphere is just great for all ages, and definitely worth the 5 Francs entrance fee!

Lugano has a lot to offer & the promenade is a beautiful place to walk or take a boat ride. Lake Lugano is gorgeous. Not far from Como, Italy. You do have to pay to cross the border - 40 Swiss francs - but the ticket is good for a year. We love to visit Lugano - which is in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. Keep a look out for some rather unusual statues & art. Also, Switzerland as a whole is very clean. Not a speck of trash anywhere. Don't miss out on this as well as "Swiss Minatur" which is very close & has miniature recreations of all the major cities in Switzerland. Lovely!

This is a top-notch aquatic facility right in the heart of Lugano. But the lake itself is such a stunner, you might not be interested in a swimming pool right next to it!

I went here with some friends and their families (2 young kids). The Lido has a beach to go swimming in the lake of Lugano (depending on the season, the water can be a little cool for me). At this lido, they also have some swimming pools. The grassy areas where you can sit fill up very quickly, so don't expect a great spot if you don't arrive earlier in the morning. There is some food available, but many people brought their own. The beach is relatively small.
