The biggest attraction in Lugano, and probably the reason you were drawn to the city in the first place, is the gorgeous lake it sits on. Take your time to walk along the lakeside and if you’re brave you can even dip your toes in! On one side of the lake towards Cassarate, you will find the very well-groomed park, Parco Civico Ciani, where people of all ages stroll, walk their dogs, bring picnic lunches, gossip on park benches and even take a dip in the lake when the weather allows it. As you walk along the lake you will see a few different places where you can rent paddle boats for a few hours. Paddling a small boat out on the lake is the best excuse to justify your gelato consumption while giving you a different perspective on the city.If you want a little bit more adventure, why not hike Monte Brè, take the funicular up to the top and walk around the summit, or you can just take the funicular up and enjoy the gorgeous view without breaking a sweat. There are many different routes of varying difficulties, so you and your travel buddies should hopefully be able to find something to agree upon. At the top of the funicular, there is the sweetest little village with nice restaurants and shops to accompany the amazing view.
If you want to see all of Switzerland in one day, plan a visit to the fun and quirky Swissminatur Museum. This outdoor museum has shrunk all of Switzerland, so visitors can see the entirety of the country in an afternoon. Since the museum is outside, they are only open during warmer months so be sure to check the opening times during your visit.
If you’re looking for a historical and fun day outside of Lugano, the castles of Bellinzona may be just what you need. Bellinzona is only about thirty minutes away by train and only costs about 6 USD. The city contains three castles - Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro – along with their surrounding walls. Castelgrande may be the easiest to get to but all three can absolutely be visited in one day. Castelgrande dates back the late 1st century, which is so incredible to think that something built so long ago has remained standing, so that adventurers like us can enjoy it. You can get to the castle by elevator or by foot, but don’t worry about getting lost as there are plenty of signs. After visiting one or all three of the castles, enjoy some time in the historical center of the city. There are many nice cafes and small restaurants in the city so you take some time to reflect on the beauty of the region. If you have the chance, every Sunday there is a farmer’s market in the historical center of Bellinzona where you may be able to snag some great souvenirs.
