    If you fancy a swim, then you may go the the lido. They have outdoor swimming pools (olympia size, a midsized heated one and kid's pools) as well as a beach, so that you can swim in the lake. There is also a covered swimming pool in the same area and a tennis court.

    In summer they also have open air cinema in the evenings during about one month.

    easy hiking: monte san salvatore

    by call_me_rhia Written Nov 7, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this is an easy hiking trip from Lugano. From the Paradiso area you take the funicular up Monte San Salvatore, and then you follow the signs pointing you to a path leading to Carona. it takes about an hour down, and carona's a traditional interesting old stone village. There are also restaurants to stop for a drink or something to eat. From there on you follow the signs to parco san grato (a botanical park) and then continue towards morcote/vico morcote. before the path diverges you find another little restaurant in the middle of an alm (you'll probably find cows too). I suggest you take the path to Vico Morcote, since it's less steep and more interesting - plus vico morcote's a very tiny but lovely village. Eventually when you reach it you'll find another sign pointing you to Morcote, an old (slightly touristic) old fishing village. From there you can return to Lugano either by bus or by boat.
    Warning: the last one leaves at arounf 5 PM

    Equipment: sturdy walking shoes and a little bottle of water.

    This is one of the best gyms in the world.
    It is not the biggest or the most anything.
    What it is is elegant, modern, clean, and thought
    through to perfection.

    Equipment: You can stay at the hotel and the gym is included in the rate, or you can live at the residence and pay a monthly fee per person of 150 CH, or a 6 month contract is 1235 CH.

  • Forza Bianconer! Hockeytown Lugano

    by Mr.Smash Updated Jun 14, 2003

    ...a MUST for everyone interested in professional hockey is a visit to a game of six times swiss champion HC LUGANO (campioni/champions in 1986, 1987, 1988, 1990, 1999, 2003). The white-and-blacks ("bianconeri" in italian) play in the "Resega" stadium, reachable easily by bus from downtown Lugano (bus terminal "Lugano centro"). Tremendous hockey guaranteed and the "tifosi" in the stadium's north zone ("curva nord") deliver one of Switzerlands best support in hockey. I'm living 1000 km away from Lugano and travel to their games five to seven times a year. Always a pleasure! Best games against Ambri,Zuerich/Zurigo, Davos.
