city. You might also like to rent a mountain bike and pedal your way through the lush vegetation in the clean mountain air. Lake Lugano happens to have a plentiful population of fish and fishing is permitted. Take a day on board a boat and see what you catch! When the sun goes down, take in a movie or hit the town and see if you can win big at one of the local casinos.

Lugano Lake is the Ticino equivalent to neighborod Lake Como. It's 3 times smaller and part of it (the Ceresio) belong to Italy, but almost (I said almost) equally as beautiful. Very rich in fish, around the city of Lugano, the best way to enjoy it is walking on the promenade or taking a boat trip.

Lugano is spectacular. Como's Swiss cousin. Imagine high mountains rising right from the clear waters of a massive lake. The town of Lugano is very clean and beautiful.

This place was A-Ma-Zing!! You have to come here if you are visiting Milan - it is just 1 hour and 40 minutes train ride away from the Milan Centrale FS Station. The architecture of this place and the scenery at the lake is perfect!! Can't recommend this place enough!!

Lake Lugano is a glacial lake in between Italy and Switzerland. Ride the water ferry for amazing views of the mountains, small villages, and Lugano. Small restaurants and bars line the waterfront, even in the small towns. An ideal place for summer water sports.

Lots of options for paddle boat and motor boat rentals during the summer months. Stroll the pathway along the lake for gelato and great people watching.

Simply the best. Enjoy the moment of a ride with a little boat (that you can easily rent in summer time) or with the local boat company. Go to Cantine di Gandria o Caprino. Discover the beaches of Agno, Caslano, Figino and Maroggia

Lake Lugano is absolutely gorgeous! Anywhere you look at it from, it is spectacular! It is a decent size as well, going into Italy. A boat ride to Gandria, Switzerland is a must as well as it is a jewel!

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Switzerland in my humble opinion! Amazingly beautiful! Such a pristine & bogglingly fantastic Swiss paradise, seemingly snuggled in amongst the mountains & hills. The gem itself, is the lake, surrounded by the local city. Get to a high point & just look down & you will just lose words for a bit. A very memorable experience. If you are in central Switzerland, heading for Italy, add this hidden beauty to your list of stuff to do!
