Enjoy the beauty and culture of the southernmost cantone of Switzerland


Historically Lucerne had always a very good bond to the south. Goods and people took their way from Italy to Lucerne and vice-versa.
You will travel by van in the footsteps of Swiss history and explore typical southern cities, picturesque seaside jewels and majestic castles.
Try from the local dishes, such as risotto, polenta or even fish from the Ticino lakes.

While it may be cold and rainy in Lucerne you could encounter another climate in Ticino. You will definitely see palm groves, lush vegetation, colorful flowers and charming lanes with ancient architecture. Good weather permitting and between spring and autumn, you can enjoy a boat trip on Lago di Lugano with great views to the steep mountains above the shore.
Ticino is worth to visit in all seasons, even for a second time!
