Located in the popular holiday region of Ticino, Lugano is the largest Italian-speaking town in Switzerland.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lugano: Falconeria Locarno (in Locarno) and Bellinzona (Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie, Castelli di Bellinzona, &more). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Lake Lugano, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Santa Maria degli Angioli, get great views at Monte Bre, and walk around Parco Civico.

To find maps, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Lugano trip planner.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Lugano is an approximately 22-hour combination of flight and train. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Jakarta to Lugano due to the time zone difference. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Jakarta in November: high temperatures in Lugano hover around 14°C and lows are around 4°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Wed) so you can catch the train to Zermatt.
