The largest city in Switzerland’s Italian-speaking region of Ticino welcomes you!

Discover our typically Mediterranean atmosphere on a human scale. Lugano is the perfect setting for relaxation and fun. Admire the scenery from top to bottom: From the peaks of San Salvatore or Monte Bre towering over the city, walking through the subtropical gardens of Ciani Park and the lakeside riviera, or dive into our pristine lake at one of our many lidos. Explore enchanting villages and nature on guided hikes. Wander through the charming heart of the city, shop on Via Nassa or at the local market, pause for pastry, or drop in for drinks. Don’t forget the culture! The LAC Lugano Arts Centre and our museums also await you.
