Lugano Region

Where the city merges with nature

Cycling by the lake of Lugano or walking on one of the many hiking trails in the region, take every moment to be surprised by the beauty of Lugano Region.


Discover Lugano and its Sugarloaf Mountain, Monte San Salvatore, which recalls Rio De Janeiro.
An international city which blends finance and culture. It now takes around 15-25 minutes less to reach Lugano by train, departing from Switzerland’s major cities. Indulge in the pleasant tranquillity of its parks and the Old-Town’s porticos. Relax with a spot of shopping and a stroll by the lakeside, among the palms and olive trees.

It’s a region that can be discovered on foot or bike. Admire the mountains rising steeply from the lakeside and explore the fascinating little villages dotted along the shoreline.

Track down Hermann Hesse’s legacy in Montagnola or venture into one of the genuinely engaging city-museum exhibitions.

Come and enjoy this corner of Switzerland, where city and nature seamlessly combine. What are you waiting for?
