Create an itinerary including Parco Ciani
Take a stroll through Parco Ciani, Lugano's major green space. The park covers 6.3 hectares (15.6 acres), so you can explore extensively without retracing your steps. Discover paths lined with statues and fountains amidst the meticulously kept English lawn. The park is divided into two sections: one features Italian and English gardens, with manicured flower beds and tree species from around the world, while the other is more wild, with a forest of oak, lime, plane, and maple trees. This area also houses the natural history museum and a convention center. Plan my Lugano trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • If you are not in a hurry then visit the park. Take a picnic basket and enjoy the view or take a dip in the water there is a small beach too. Just be with the nature and pristine waters.

  • We loved the park; clean with amazing nature and greenery. The city is nice as well, but too expensive for tourists. I would recommend staying and spending in Como and only visiting Lugano unless you can afford it for sure. Also, Como is more socialized and has more interactions with the people there; if you like privacy and quiet, then Lugano is your place.
  • So peaceful park, I visited Lugano with a tour from Milan and I had chance to visit this park. Very good job from the people who is taking care of plants, flowers and keeping place clean.
