Welcome to Lugano, the capital of the Swiss canton of Ticino, where Switzerland has an Italian accent. This city rose out of its strategic position, just below the best alpine passes.

But there is more to Lugano than shopping and relaxation, so come with us to discover the ancient history of this beautiful city.
