Lugano, Switzerland

Lugano is in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino in the southern Switzerland, on the banks of the beautiful lake that makes this Swiss border enchanting.
Thanks to its temperate climate and the vicinity of ski fields, the town is a favourite resort for tourists, that can also enjoy very special nights in the local casino. Interesting sights are the 11th-century romanesque cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Lungolago and the old town; the surrounding mountains offer wonderful trekking itineraries, and the many green parks and villas relaxing walks.
