Lugano

La Belleza di Lugano
Lugano, Switzerland is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world. With the Mediterranean climate of the Ticino region and the Swiss-Italian culture, Lugano is not your average stadt der Schweiz.

Palm trees sway and colorful flowers bloom down by the lake; while on the horizon, the snow-capped mountains glisten.

Take a stroll down by the lake. Sit at a lido cafe, sip on a macchiato and drink in the brilliance of Lugano.

Peaceful Lake Lugano
Lake Lugano is, which is very close to the Swiss-Italian border is a quaint area tucked away into the hills. On the day I visited rain was heavy but I decided to take a boat ride from Lugano to a tiny town called Gandria, that can only be accessed by boat or by foot. The small town had such an "old-world" feeling. This photograph embodies that area for me...timeless.

The Swiss train system is top-notch and trains run from Zurich to Lugano throughout the day. I highly recommend taking the time to visit these small towns because they really are beautiful.

Lago di Lugano, Swiss and Italian
Lake Lugano snakes between two countries, with two-thirds in Switzerland and one-third in Italy.

Saffron and Ginger re-defined in Parfaits
Parfaits with Saffron and Ginger taste? Yes, we were also intrigued, reading the Ice cream card and ordered.

Verdict:

The Saffron Parfait was served with Passion fruit sauce. It is a good combination of the lightly sour sauce with te sweet and Saffron Parfait

Ginger Parfait: Tasted good too, but needs a bit of a stronger taste of the ginger and some sauce as well. May be lime?

However, go ahead and give it a try!

Summer Swimming in Lake Lugano
On hot summer days the Lido di Lugano, on the eastern edge of Lugano’s lakefront, bustles with families and other water-lovers seeking to slake the heat. The outdoor park and water complex features an Olympic-size swimming pool, a smaller heated pool, and two kiddie pools. You’ll also find an alfresco bar and some self-service restaurants. Entrance fees range from 3 to 10 Swiss francs, depending on ages and access.
