Amazing place with amazing view, very spacious. Would recommend for all the sun seekers, you can swim both in a pool and in a lake! Might be crowded on weekends, but there is really a lot of space not like in other Lidos I have been.

The Lido is a good place to relax. I was laying on the grass area, and there where no noise or annoying kids running around. The pool is very good with wide lanes. Unfortunately the 10 meter tower was closed that day. There a are lot of lifeguards around the pools. It's a little expensive, if you only need to... More

Wonderful area by the lake with a sandy beach and several swimming pools to suit all ages and stages. Lovely grassy areas for picnics with plenty of shade from the trees.

We've holidayed in the area for years - all the kids want to do is "LIDO". Great views of the lake & mountains - also good value. With small kids, the number of life guards on duty is a real comfort.

Great views! Great facility! Great atmosphere! Many things in Switzerland but this is a bargain for an outdoor activity in the summer. It has everything you need and you can stay all day! It was a present surprise to find this place.

The Lido is a good place when you have nothing to do on a weekend. You can go there with your friends or children and enjoy a good day. The entrance is not cheap nor expensive but the food in there is very expensive. You have sandwiches and fried potatoes and other simple food but the prices are high for... More

The is a main square with buildings covered in cascading flower boxes. On certain days they hold open air markets, festivals & cinema, otherwise just sit at a cafe with an espresso and soak it all in. In this area of Switzerland, the variety of languages you'll hear are amazing!

Lugano is a very chilled city, and the lido just epitomises this. There are many places to sit both in the sun and shade (grassy, beach etc) both of which give easy access to the lake and the swimming pools. The lake is beautiful, stretching out into the mountains, however it can be a little dirty - I suppose this... More

Lugano has a lot to offer & the promenade is a beautiful place to walk or take a boat ride. Lake Lugano is gorgeous. Not far from Como, Italy. You do have to pay to cross the border - 40 Swiss francs - but the ticket is good for a year. We love to visit Lugano - which is in... More

This is a top-notch aquatic facility right in the heart of Lugano. But the lake itself is such a stunner, you might not be interested in a swimming pool right next to it!
