has not lost its romantic and elegant nature. The town lies
on the shores of its lake that pays homage with a wonderful
view and a mild climate, very similar to that of the Mediterranean.

that you can enjoy throughout the year. Lugano is conveniently
linked to all major international airports; the railway station
is located above the historical town that can be reached by

and in the vicinity of the lively Piazza della Riforma. Via
Nassa is the main shopping street, where you can buy precious
jewellery or designer ware such as the prestigious Cartier,
Ermenegildo Zegna, Hermes, Louis Vuitton...
Lugano is also an important cultural pole, more so than financial.

of Swiss living to the cheerfulness of the sun and the joy of
living typical of the Mediterranean regions.
