“Lugano”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Lake Lugano is a beautiful spot to visit with the lake surrounded by fairly steep hills dotted with quaint villages. There is heaps to do from just walking to riding the funiculars to the tops of the mountains and peaks. The waterfront is a hive of activity with night shows and markets.

“Great window shopping”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Beautiful location on the lake and very pleasant to wander around admiring the little squares and stairways up towards the cathedral. However the cathedral was covered in scaffolding and it was very busy. It is an expensive place to go shopping but we enjoyed window shopping especially the magnificent cake shops. Beautiful park to enjoy our picnic lunch of salad and bread that we had just bought from the deli.

“Nice walk along the lake, kids playing”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Before dinner we took a short walk along Lake Lugano. In the evening sun the lake setting is gorgeous. People are tanning at the beach, waves lapping, kids playing at the playground

“Swiss Italian Lake a delight”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We visited the city of Lugano with a Group. The lake views are spectacular from the town. There is a funicular to a mountain top which offers great views of the Lake. There is a lovely promenade walk. Euros are acceptable in cafes and prices are quoted in Swiss Francs and Euros. The town has fine shopping facilities. Watch out for public holidays when all shops are closed!
