Luggage storage at Lugano train station

by jw713

Are there storage lockers or somewhere to securely store luggage at the Lugano train station for a few hours?

Re: Luggage storage at Lugano train station

by mccalpin

According the to the official Swiss railway website for Lugano:
"Left-luggage office
Mo-Fr 09:00 - 13:00 14:30 - 18:45
Sa,Su 09:00 - 13:00 15:00 - 18:45"
see http://mct.sbb.ch/mct/en/reisemarkt/services/im-bahnhof/pos-services.htm?posid=1442

While other Swiss stations may have lockers, Italian stations don't normally have lockers but have manned offices instead (called "Left Luggage" in English), and since this station is so close to Italy, they may do it the Italian way.

Travel Tips for Lugano

Lugano Tip

by o00o

I wasn't plan to visit Lugano this time but there was a railway strike in Italy and the train did not move for the whole weekend, so my friend Elena and Marco from Milano decide to send me out from Italy to any near by city, that's why I was here before moving out to continue my journey.

ORIGLIO

by nygaston

Origlio Paese . . . The Val Capriasca area and this village with its rustic homes, loggias, and inner courtyards are worth seeing. From there, it's only a five-minute walk to Lake Origlio surrounded by reeds and chestnut trees and a breeding place for rare birds. It can be reached from Lugano by post bus (Lines 633.28). Get off at the village stop.

Palm Express or Pendolino . . . There are two special ways to reach the Ticino. The former, a four-hour bus ride from the Engadine (St. Moritz) to Lugano takes you down the Maloja Pass through Italy to Lake Como and the lakeside resort of Mennagio. The border, Gandria, and Lugano are close by. The ``Pendolino,'' part of Italy's fast train system, runs twice a day between Zurich and Milan with brief stops in Bellinzona and Lugano. Zurich to Lugano takes about 3 hours 15 minutes.

Quinto . . . Just off N2 south of Airolo in the Leventina Valley, this village is home to the church of Sts. Peter and Paul. The six-story Romanesque campanile is from the 12th century.

Riva San Vitale . . . This lakeside village, a half-mile west of Capolago at the base of Monte Genroso, is home to Switzerland's oldest ecclesiastical building, an early Christian baptistery (circa AD 500) The parish church and Church of Santa Croce, a 16th-century building with an impressive dome, are also well worth visiting.

Swissminiatur . . . At Melide, ``Switzerland in Miniature'' consists of small-scale replicas of scenes from all parts of the country, including working models of trains and cable cars. It can be reached by bus, train, or lake steamer.

The sleepy mountain frazione...

by worldtrekker

The sleepy mountain frazione (hamlet) of Ciona actually belongs to Carona. We descended down through the woods and came out here in Ciona where we found decorative houses with old wooden beams and beautiful gardens and plants.

There are not many...

by Svitata

There are not many international flights that go to the small Lugano airport, Agno. You would have to fly to Geneva or Zurich first and take another flight to Lugano (Crossair). Alternatively, you could transit in Milan or take a train from there.
Lugano is a small town and you can basically go around by foot, especially if you're staying in or near the town center. Taxis are very expensive there. There is a train system which has conveniently located train stations if you're staying slightly out of town.

Rent a boat at Lake Lugano

by nytraveler21

Prices were surprisingly cheap to rent a boat in Switzerland which is notorious for being expensive. I think the price was roughly 50 francs an hour with a slight deal for three hours. We chose three hours. The boats had some speed to them, and you can take Lake Lugano into Italy. We were told to stop at customs but we eventually reached the other end of the lake so we knew we were in Italy. So much for the customs. Fun to ride the coasts on this clean lake. Id recommend getting a boat for a day, bringing lunch, and having a swim.
