“Wow..need I say more..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We arrived in Zurich and took the 3 hour train ride to Lugano, this jewel of a lake is nestled between Switzerland and Italy, you can actually take a boat ride and criss cross borders. Breathtaking views from the promenade and eat gelato

“Very beautiful lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Lake Lugano is a very beautiful lake, surrounded by high mountains and its lake shore is one of the best places for walking that I have visited so far.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I took the boat ride around the lake, including the portion in Italy. It was a clear day and the views were beautiful. The little towns dotting the coastline were all unique and definitely reminded me of Italy. Well worth the money.

“Breathtaking panoramic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

The Lugano Lake it is simply a natural jewel nestled in the beautiful and lush green in the south of Switzerland, right on the border Italy with the city of Como.
Beautiful day with many great points of observation, but the evening is magical, the many lights, those many hotels, restaurants and houses that overlook it makes the idyllic atmosphere.
I enjoyed the view, but you know.. Switzerland is famous for its exceptional nature.
