Lugano

Our scrapbook notes about Lugano

Not a huge city but big enough to spend a few days backpacking. This city, in Southern Switzerland, is part of the Italian section, so expect to hear the Italian language and snippets of Italian culture. Lugano is actually known for it's banking centre but don't let that put you off this picturesque city. Surrounded by the Ticino Lake, which makes for great views as well as boat trips and pedalo hires, this city is good for backpackers wanting to see some great scenery and little cobbled streets. Not a big nightlife or cultural sites, but worth a visit if travelling between Switzerland and Italy.
