Subject: Lugano Information offer
Hello Evelyne,

Here some other suggestions of nice hotels where to stay at during a your stay in Lugano.

I definitely would recommend the Hotel Seegarten which is a very nice 4 Star hotel located directly on the lakeshore. It has a wonderful terrace where you can have a nice lunch or dinner. The hotel also has a swimming pool. The town is within walking distance (approx . 15 minutes). It actually is a nice walk along the lake shore through a beautiful park (Parco Ciani).

If you prefer staying right in the city center I can recommend the Hotel Dante to you. It's just opposite the cable car which arrives from the railway station so you do not need to walk a lot especially if you are traveling with baggage.

The rooms are not too big but nice and friendly. The hotel is very close to via Nassa where all the shops and boutiques are.

While you are staying at Lugano you should take a boat ride on the beautiful lake. I would suggest to go to Gandria, which is a nice small village with narrow streets just on the border to Italy. From there you can walk back to Lugano ( it takes 1 hour)or take another boat ride across the lake and visit the Customs museum. It takes about 1 hour.

Another nice place to visit and reachable by boat is Morcote.

Actually there is so much to see and do in Lugano and its surroundings that a couple of days often are not enough.

Anyway, I wish you a nice trip through Switzerland

Regards, Cornelia
