Absolutely loved every moment spent in Lugano. Treasured and will return again - it is a time and a place that renews your spirits, where you can drink in the beauty without words.

Lake Lugano is such a beautiful place. Everything is so clean and well kept. The lake water is so clear you can see down a good 20-30 feet. Small shops here and there. Beautiful gardens and paddle boats can be rented to venture out onto...More

We stayed in Lugano and strolled all along the Boardwalk. Lots of places to stop fro drinks, snacks, meals, shopping or people watching. Easy access point to hop on boats to visit other areas across the water.

As part of our visit to Italy, we also stopped at Lake Lugano since it wasn't far at all. What a beautiful lake with great walk paths around the lake. There is nice playground for kids, shops are just opposite the lake. Lots of parking.

The lake, the mountains and the center are beautiful and there is a garden overlooking the lake worth visiting and you can take a cruise by boat or small boat
