Lake Lugano is nestled between Lake Maggiore and Lake Como and lies partly in Switzerland and partly in Italy.
Although the smallest of the three lakes, Lake Lugano lacks for nothing in beauty, character or charm and it remains popular all year round with visitors from around the world.
With its picture perfect villages and its rugged shoreline it mirrors the charms of the more famous Lake Como.
Lake Lugno's waters and mountainous backdrop
make the region a haven for watersports, hiking, trekking, mountain-biking, horse-riding, sailing, golfing and various other outdoor pursuits.
The towns and villages around the lake (like Gandria, Morcote, Carona, Porlezza, Melide, San Mamete and Campione d'Italia) offer visitors a world of history and culture
with their medieval churches, art galleries and museums. Explore with ease with our added car hire option.
