If you didn’t know better and arrived in the city of Lugano on Lake Lugano, you’d think you were in Italy. You hear Italian, it looks Italian, and it tastes Italian. Surprise, surprise — the city of Lugano is part of the Ticino region of Switzerland.
We had an parents-only getaway to Lake Lugano this fall. The scenery is very striking with rugged mountains that rise right out of the lake.
