Am lucky enough to be going on an escorted Tour of Italy this year and we're calling in at Lugano on the way home (I think just for three/four hours).
When we went on a Great Rail Journey and stopped briefly in Switzerland on the way home we were caught out - couldn't have a coffee or anything as we had no Swiss francs. Fortunately it was only for about an hour whilst we changed trains so we survived!
Can anyone advise me if Euros are accepted in Lugano at restaurants, shops etc? Would rather not use a credit card if I can help it. Also, any advice on anywhere that's a "must-see" during our visit? We're looking forward to having a walk around the town.
Any advice on either/both these topics gratefully received!
