Lake Lugano (Switzerland) in 4K
Lake Lugano (Italian: Lago di Lugano or Ceresio, from Ceresius lacus; German: Luganersee, German pronunciation) is a glacial lake which is situated on the border between southern Switzerland and northern Italy. The lake, named after the city of Lugano, is situated between Lake Como and Lago Maggiore. It was cited for the first time by Gregory of Tours in 590 with the name Ceresio, a name which is said to have derived from the Latin word cerasus, meaning cherry, and refers to the abundance of cherry trees which at one time adorned the shores of the lake. The lake appears in documents in 804 under the name Laco Luanasco.
Well-known mountains and tourist destinations on the shores of the lake are Monte Brè to the east, Monte San Salvatorewest of Lugano, and Monte Generoso on the south-east shore. The World Heritage Site Monte San Giorgio is situated south of the lake.

A walk along Lake Lugano, Switzerland
SEE MY TRAVEL SITES :
You are going to have a bit of a problem finding somewhere to park your motorhome in Lugano, you may have to leave it outside the town and get the bus in or alternatively find a paid parking spot in the town which is long enough to accommodate your vehicle Lugano is not motorhome friendly, many car parks expressly forbid motorhome parking. Assuming that you get round this problem then Lugano, the largest Italian speaking town in Switzerland, will give you some wonderful lake and mountain views.
Just over 70,000 people live in Lugano and with house prices similar to those in London, one can imagine what type of people they must be. Inhabited since ancient times, the city really took off in the mid nineteenth century as a comfortable lake side retreat. From around 1960 it established itself as the third banking city of Switzerland helped largely through the flood of Italian money leaving that country. In 1956 it was host to the first Eurovision Song Contest. Today more than ninety percent of the working population is employed in the services sector.
Lugano has a humid subtropical climate with relatively mild winters, warm summers and plenty of rain no matter what the season. It has an average of 98.1 days of rain or snow per year and on average receives 1,559 mm of precipitation. The wettest month is May during which Lugano receives an average of 196 mm of rain, while the driest month of the year is February with an average of 52 mm of precipitation.
The centre is relatively flat but if you are planning on going much further afield, including into the suburbs of the city, you are going to need to be quite fit. Steps in many places provide the short cut for those that don't want to follow the winding roads.
Both Lake Lugano and the surrounding mountains provide a wide variety of outdoor activities. The area surrounding Lugano is home to over 300 kilometres of mountain biking trails, the largest net of trails in Switzerland.
Lake Lugano measures 48.7 square kilometres, 63% of which is in Switzerland and 37% in Italy. It has an average width of roughly 1 kilometre and is nearly 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) at its widest. The maximum depth of the lake is 279 meters. The water is generally warm with average water temperatures in the summer ranging from 19.5 °C to 24.0 °C. There is a very pleasant walk along the lake front called the Olive Route which offers explanations of olive cultivation every few hundred metres and has magnificent views (see film and photos). As one gets to Gandia, looking east in the morning one is greeted with an almost dream like appearance of the mountains as they fall down to the lake.
Several companies, including the Società Navigazione del Lago di Lugano (SNL), provide tourist boat services on the lake. A popular excursion is by SNL boat to the picturesque lakeside village of Gandria. Additionally there are numerous shipyards, water taxis and boat rental sites along the lake, as well as hotels and restaurants that offer moorings. Bathing in the lake is allowed at any of the 50 or so bathing establishments located along the Swiss shores.
In addition to the lake, Lugano is surrounded by mountains, which provide a number of opportunities for sports or sightseeing. Two mountains, both providing excellent views over the city and lake, bracket each end of the city's waterfront. Monte Brè (933 metres), to the north, is reputedly Switzerland's sunniest spot and is also home to the old village of Brè. Monte San Salvatore (912 metres), to the south, has an old church and museum atop its summit. Both mountains are accessible by funicular railways, which are themselves easily accessible by frequent city bus or by car.
Slightly further afield is Monte Generoso (1,704 metres), with a view that encompasses the lakes of Lugano, Como and Maggiore, as well as the Alps from the Matterhorn to the Bernina Range, the Lombardy Plains, and, on a clear day, the city of Milan. The summit can be reached by taking either an SNL boat, or a railway train, to Capolago, and changing there onto a rack railway train of the Monte Generoso Railway.

Lugano and Gandria in Switzerland’s Ticino
Lugano, in the Ticino district of southern Switzerland on the shores of Lake Lugano, has both a medieval and Mediterranean feeling that you will discover in our in-depth visit, which also brings you to the lakefront villages of Gandria and Morcote.
We go by train, boat, on foot and funicolare to show you many great sites including Swiss Miniatur, with small models of Swiss buildings in a park setting, and the Alprose chocolate factory.
The historic center of Lugano is famous for arcades that line both sides of the street forming covered sidewalk areas with a calm and sheltered environment, protecting you from the rain and sun.
This style of columns and arches is reminiscent of Italian architecture -- after all, we are right next to Italy here in Lugano and you also see that feeling of Italy in the piazza, the big open square. The language is Italian and so is much of the lifestyle here in Ticino, which enjoys a magical blend of two cultures, with Swiss efficiency and Italian charm.
You will love how well the pedestrian zone works – peaceful streets with people walking here and there. It is so friendly and sociable, makes for a great atmosphere.
We really enjoyed stopping at this famous gourmet food shop, Gabbani, in business here since 1937 and they've really branched out – they've got a wine shop, a cheese shop, and they even run a small hotel that's ranked number three on Trip Advisor.
This area is also world famous for its chocolates. In fact there's a chocolate factory just outside the city we visit, the Alprose, and you will see how they make their chocolates.
Another feature that makes Lugano so attractive are the hillside streets. It's just so much more interesting than being in a flatland town. They've got staircase streets, they've got gently sloping streets, and it's all for pedestrians. It's a small part of town. It's a section which is goes up the hill alongside the funicular, but it really is a lot of fun to check it out. Some of the restaurants put tables out on the staircase streets. That would be a fine place to eat on a nice day. And even though it's a little bit of work to walk up the steps, it's a very popular retail center.
It's a kind of backbeat neighborhood with some quirky little boutiques and unique shops and artists and craftspeople. You'll run into some real characters here. Custom-made clothing and jewelry a whole variety of fun things to look at.
It's the kind of neighborhood that would be very easy to mess, or you might be easily discouraged if you get to the foot of one of those hills and look up and think oh, no, I don't want to walk up that hill. But really it's not difficult at all. The slope is very gradual – you walk up, you walk down.
We’re also going to take you on a scenic boat ride from Lugano to Gandria, just five miles away. On a day like this it's perfect to sit up on the outdoor deck, or you could sit down below inside. It's very comfortable there as well. We're traveling in the month of May in Switzerland and it's warm and sunny especially because we're in the southern part of the country.
Gandria is truly a magical little village, clinging to the hillside along the shores of Lake Lugano. We will be getting off here and taking a little stroll through the village and finding it is a pedestrian zone. Cars are not allowed in the village itself because the lanes are just much too narrow and steep.
As soon as you get off the boat you can start exploring as we wind our way around these narrow lanes, and bends and turns and twists and discovering – always fun to explore someplace new for the first time.
This is part of our big series of movies about Switzerland taking you to most of the great places. We will bring you to Lucerne and up to Mount Titlis, Mount Rigi, over to Interlaken, up to the Jungfrau. We will see the Shilthorn, Lauterbrunnen Valley, Trummelbach Falls, Grindelwald, Bern, then on to Zermatt, the Matterhorn, yes we will have a look at the Gornergrat, up the Sunnegga, do some hiking, show you the village then on down to Lugano and Locarno in the southern part of Switzerland, the Ticino we also take you to the great city of Zürich. Look for them in our Swiss collection.
