Monte Carlo of Switzerland
Located in the popular holiday region of Ticino, Lugano is the largest Italian-speaking town in Switzerland. The city represents an important banking and business center, but offers more than just stiff suits. Situated on Lake Lugano, with the Lugano Prealps as the city's backdrop, Lugano provides visitors ample opportunity for outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, mountain biking, and boating. Because of the growing numbers of celebrities and professional athletes visiting the city, Lugano has earned the nickname Monte Carlo of Switzerland. The warm summer weather, tropical palm trees, and lakeshore boulevards make Lugano a popular holiday destination. Use our Switzerland trip planner to plan your trip to Lugano and other destinations in Switzerland.
