Best hotels overlooking lake lugano

by NicolaHeidi


this area is very unknown to me. I'm from the uk and am planning to visit lugano in march 2008 as a surprise for my husband as he originates from a village nearby. I feel Lugano is the best place to stay just by browsing on the internet. I wanted to stay in a 5 star hotel with great views of the lakes. We're still relatively "young" (I think!!) so would prefer something not too formal but still 5 star. Any help would be greatly received.

I once stayed in an absolutely delightful place on the lake Lugano shore in Gandria. Gandria is a small village sticking on the shore, that you best approach by boat.
The hotel in question was this one:

We stayed at the Hotel International au lac it should be exactly what you are looking for. I put Lugano in my top #5 places that I fell in love with and could live. Try the Olympia for dinner or lunch it is in the town square and had such great food we went there two nights in a row.

Bring Mosquito Repellent

by thinking

If you are from North America, you will bring your tennis shoes so you can walk around the town. If you want to look Italian, best to bring makeup, jewelry, a bronzer to make you look very tan, and rent a small dog to carry everywhere with you. Bring plenty of sun screen as the sun is very bright here. Also bring an umbrella because the weather in the mountains changes so fast. I use the umbrella to keep the sun off of me and it is also handy the next minute due to rain suddenly appearing without any warning. www.directories.ch

A riot of colour for your pleasure.

Take time to stop and smell the flowers when on vacation, enjoy the ambience around you. take time to try to meet your neighbour at the cafe, it is all part of the experience that a traveller enjoys but a tourist misses.

Flights to Zurich and Geneva...

by sandysmith

Flights to Zurich and Geneva in Switzerland. Milan in Italy can also be useful for gettting into Lugano. There is also a rail service from the airport to Lugano - Trains depart at 8.30am, 11.30am, 4.30pm and 7pm.

During the summer (Apil-Oct) the Lugano Regional Pass gives free travel on trains and boats on and around Lago di Lugano (including funiculars up to San Salvatore and Monte Brè), with half-price discounts on transport around Locarno, for three days within seven (Fr.70) or seven consecutive days (Fr.92). Similarly, the Locarno/Ascona Regional Pass gives free travel on trains and boats in the Swiss basin of Lago Maggiore, plus half-price on funiculars, chairlifts and transport in and around Lugano, for three days in seven (Fr.50) or seven consecutive days (Fr.76).Discounts on these passes are available to Swiss Pass holders.

Houses are now well up the mountain.

by dabidc

This is the hill to climb, for the energetic there is a path for the less adventurous there is the funicular and a pleasant walk along the lake side to reach the lower station.

What is there to see well come with me for a visit.
