Lugano and his Lake are the Swiss answer to Lake Como. Indeed the landscape is almost identical, but being in Switzerland, there is more wealth spread in the Ticino pearl. The natural beauty is punctuated by stylish buildings and a great always evolving offer of traditional grottos and hipster bars. And on top of that, the area is blessed with a microclimate that guarantees 300+ sunny days a year.

Not really Swiss; not really Italian. Lugano is a hybrid, difficult to categorize. Much of the city is built on hillsides so there are lots of steps to climb. Fortunately, funiculars are also strategically placed. Another place to explore and wait for serendipity to strike.

Lugano is a little bit Swiss and a little big Italian. It's also a large banking center. Ferries depart regularly for tours around the lake. Pop-up bars and restaurants line the waterfront. And the views are amazing.

Lugano is a very quiet town in the already (relatively) quiet country of Switzerland. There are only a couple of noteworthy nightclubs and one notable casino. The area is very beautiful though, and there are several great hiking opportunities within an hour of the city.
