Temperature and climate in Lugano


The temperatures are pleasant and the climate is mild all year round on the shores of Lake Lugano. The annual average temperature is over 12°C and although the top temperatures can exceed 30 degrees in July and August, the breeze off the lake means that you can still enjoy a pleasant stroll through the town’s alleys. The sun shines on the southern side of the Alps (more than 2,000 hours of sunshine per year in Lugano) and fog is a rare phenomenon, which always arouses interest.

Temperatures can exceed 20°C in May and 25°C in June. The minimum temperatures in April are around 8°C. However, there is always plenty of sunshine: at least 180 hours of sun per month in spring!
