Apparently this is the longest covered arcade shopping street in Europe. All the well known high priced fashion stores are here as well as slightly less expensive ones. Plenty of place to enjoy an expresso in this subtropical resort town of Lugano.

The square is in typical italian style for this bordering part Switzerland with Italy. Nice cozy place to hang around. The lake is just next by..
