Lugano & Ticino
Located on the Lake Lugano shore in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino bordering Italy, Lugano is a town with a Mediterranean flair, adorned with parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings.
Set on the lakeside, Lugano is surrounded by numerous mountains offering splendid viewpoints, and boasts a traffic-free historic town centre with exclusive museums and a packed calendar of events.
When to visit
The best time to visit Lugano & the Ticino Region in general is in summer, which is July – September. However, it is very busy during these times. So, shoulder seasons are a good alternative, especially October – November, because the snow hasn't come yet and the weather is usually quite sunny.
