Lugano

— 3 nights

Monte Carlo of Switzerland

Located in the popular holiday region of Ticino, Lugano is the largest Italian-speaking town in Switzerland.
Step off the beaten path and head to Lido di Lugano and Piazza della Riforma. Escape the urban bustle at Lido San Domenico and Cascata della Piumogna. Get out of town with these interesting Lugano side-trips: The Froda Waterfall (in Sonogno), Fossil Museum of Monte San Giorgio (in Meride) and Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie (in Bellinzona). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Centro storico Gandria, get great views at Monte San Salvatore, stroll around Parco Sul Fiume Cassarate Al Piano Stampa, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Santa Maria di Loreto.

For traveler tips, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Lugano sightseeing planner.

Bodies of Water · Mountains · Landmarks
Experience Switzerland's Mediterranean side with a visit to Ticino, where Italian flair dominates. Palm trees, beaches, piazzas, and old churches fill this Italian-speaking canton. Mirroring blue lakes reflect the majestic Alps not far off. Enjoy "la dolce vita" with an espresso among the sub-tropical gardens, romantic landscapes, and historical architecture. Rich indigo flowers dot Alpine pastures and wooded hills rising around the shores of Ticino's lakes, while delicate white camellia line lakeshore promenades. The furthest southern state, Ticino boasts a much milder climate that the rest of the country and offers plenty of sunshine.
