We drove into Lugano from Stresa to stay for 5 days. Started out walking all around to get oriented. Walked around the plaza, nothing going on. City Hall seems to be main attraction. Lots of high end stores to window shop. Can sit in plaza...More

This is not a real people magnet like most of the piazzas around Europe. Too many modern buildings to generate the attraction of people to just hang out...

A very charming square plus walk around the lake. Ice cream and a pizza dinner alfresco in one of the many dining spots where you can see the world go by.

Strolling around the Piazza, sipping a drink or a coffe in one of the overlooking bars on a sunny day, and you will get the feeling of the real Lugano life. In different seasons, you will also find small artisan booths , with local products.

This is small square near to Lugano centraal boat stop. There are many restaurants and cafes where you can just sit and relax with a meal. It also leads into the town's streets where you can shop and roam around. Beautiful and well maintained.
