The Swiss Alps region
Lugano lies in a bay on the northern side of Lake Lugano, surrounded by numerous mountains offering splendid viewpoints. The traffic-free historic town centre, the numerous buildings in Italianate Lombardy style, the exclusive museums, the mountains, lake and a packed calendar of events all invite visitors to see the sights, soak up the atmosphere – and enjoy "dolce far niente". Thanks to its mild climate, Lugano is a popular tourist destination in the spring when the camellias are in bloom.
The town centre with its Mediterranean-style squares and arcades, and numerous parks with sub-tropical plants such as the Parco Civico on the shores of the lake invite you to laze around, enjoying the atmosphere. By the lakeside promenade are the Belvedere Gardens, where the parkland boasts not only camellias and magnolias but also countless sub-tropical plants and modern works of art.
Art connoisseurs are attracted to this city of art and architecture by the high standard of the exhibitions it hosts. In the Museo Cantonale d'Arte are paintings by Klee, Jawlensky, Renoir and Degas, among others. In the last 50 years, the Ticino region, and Lugano in particular, have developed into an important region for architecture. The most well-known representatives of the "Ticino School" are Luigi Snozzi and Mario Botta. Botta's Banca del Gottardo (Viale Franscini), the Palazzo Ransila (Via Pretorio) and his own workshop on the Via Ciani are good examples.
The two closest mountains to Lugano, Monte San Salvatore and Monte Brè, give you an outstanding panorama of the town, Lake Lugano and the alpine scenery. From Monte Brè there is a walk down to the village of Brè, which has preserved its typical Ticino village centre, and enhanced it with works of art. From the San Salvatore another popular walk leads down through the beautifully situated Carona to Lake Lugano at Morcote. Taking a boat trip back to Lugano is a splendid way to round off the day. Other excursions are to the fishing village of Gandria, up the Monte San Giorgio or the Monte Generoso or to the Lilliput world of Switzerland in Miniature at Melide.
The apartment is in a calm city area. Walk to the historic city center within 15 to 20 minutes or make a bus ride of 5 minutes. Groceries are in a 300m distance. The lake and the lido (public pool) are nearby. By car it is easy to reach the beautiful mountains and valleys of Ticino, whether you want to ski in Airolo, Nara or Campo Blenio, or whether you want to hike or just to relax and sit in a Grotto enjoying a glass of delicious red wine and some salami and cheese.
Lugano offers great shopping for every price level. There are many things to do with children: visit the chocolate museum, go on boat trip, enjoy the ride on Monte Bré or San Salvatore, eat ice cream at the lake side, stroll through Parco Ciani and make a stop on the playground there, sightsseing in Lugano with the little trolley train, have fun in Swiss Miniature or even visit Como, Milano or any of the pittoresque villages in Switzerland or Italy. There are a lot of festivals going on in Lugano, Locarno and Ascona - from film to jazz, theatre and dance.
