Holidays to Lake Lugano
Lake Lugano is just one of the stunning deep blue bodies of water in the lake district in northern Italy, and it is unique in that the lake snakes its way from Italy, through Switzerland, and then back into Italy again. The charming towns and villages along the lake are great bases for exploring the natural beauty of this area, and an interesting mix of Swiss and Italian culture and cuisine.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Lake Lugano
If you plan to stay on the Italian shores of Lake Lugano, you could not find a better spot than Porlezza. This small town flanks the eastern shores of the lake, and is home to many picturesque medieval buildings, historic churches, and lovely gardens bursting with colourful flowers. Spend your days walking along beautiful paths along the lake, and your evenings dining on tasty Italian cuisine at inviting restaurants and cafes.
One of the biggest draws for visitors on a holiday to Lake Lugano is the wealth of outdoor activities on offer here. Hiking is wildly popular here, as the mountains and rolling hills that span out from the lake offer pleasant trails with stunning vistas over the water and green peaks beyond. Anglers will love the tranquil waters of the lake, as it is possible to fish from the shore or by boat for many types of fish, including white fish, European perch, catfish, and largemouth bass. Lake Lugano is also a favoured destination for mountain bikers for its challenging trails through forests and down the slopes of the mountains.
If you’re looking for a bit of excitement with your idyllic views, make the trip through the mountains to Campione d’Italia. This is a fascinating Italian commune on Lake Lugano, completely surrounded by Switzerland. Although it may seem like you are still in Switzerland, this is a great spot to find lively Italian restaurants and bars and an exciting casino. Campione d’Italia is also a tax-free zone, giving you just one more reason to visit this pretty waterfront town.
