Lugano, where culture meets luxury.

Lugano huddles around the eponymous lake, surrounded by Swiss mountains. With a dash of Italian flair, Lugano has become known as the Swiss Monte Carlo. International jet-setters spend the warm summers dining on fresh Swiss-Italian cuisine and enjoying the city’s chic ambience.
