Lugano is a city that lies on Lake Lugano, surrounded by the mountains of the Lugano Prealps in southern Switzerland, in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino, which borders Italy. Lugano centre is located on the lake shore just to the west of where the River Cassarate enters the lake. The city’s waterfront forms a crescent around the bay between the Brè (925 m) and the San Salvatore (912 m) mountains.
Lugano is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Switzerland. The city is home to a number of historic buildings and museums, whilst the surrounding area has many natural sights.
