Pasqua in Città

Lugano at its maximum splendour.

The blue sky, the clear air with the spring sun inviting people to sit outside on the terraces of the city cafés.

Cyclists and runners enthusiastically strolling along the lakeside promenade, art and culture enthusiasts gazing with interest at the spring season posters. Easter in the City (“Pasqua in Città”) represents for everyone the awakening from the winter notes to dive carefree into one of the most loved festivities for children and not only!

Once again this year, Easter in the City will transform the centre of Lugano into a cheerful stage with its numerous stalls where you can buy traditional articles and products, while the pedestrian area will be enlivened by various street entertainments suitable for young and old.
