“You need a rest?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Lugano's mainplace, just a few steps from the see, with many restaurants, where you can drink something, while you rest your feet

“The heart of Lugano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

It is the very center of Lugano. Nice newly renovated buildings all around with a few cafes and restaurants. You can walk into the beautiful city hall building and see some pictures of the old town. From the piazza you can find all the major shops and department stores. You can see the lake too.
If you walk over to the next piazza, there is a church that is worth a visit. The traditional Lugano cafe (Munger) is just a few steps away.

“Lovely and lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We visited Lugano early October and it so happened that they celebrated their Autumn Wine Festival, (from October 4 to 6).
The nice square and the entire old city centre streets around it were very lively, full of live music, street food and merchandise, and also full of visitors, it felt like a carnival, people were happy, drinking, eating, singing, dancing, and shopping all around.
The place is full of nicely decorated shops and many restaurants and nice buildings, so it is also a good place to visit even while there is no festival.
