There are a number of reasons for visiting Lugano and the main one has to be its lake. Partly in Switzerland and partly in Italy, it is the centre for much tourist activity in the area including over 300kms of marked mountain bike trails.

Lugano itself is beautiful, especially the old town which has 17 places of national historical importance including the St Lawrence Cathedral. If you’ve hired a car from Lugano Airport you can explore outside of Lugano where a popular activity is to take the funicular railway up to the top of Mount Brè for spectacular views out over Lugano and the region.
