Lugano The Essential
Recommended
The "Queen of Ceresio" stretches to the end of a harmonious bay framed by the wooded Monte Brè and Monte San Salvatore. Lugano faces south and is a health and tourist resort that is particularly popular in Spring and Autumn. It offers numerous leisure activities and is ideally located for visiting lakes Maggiore, Como and Lugano.
