A B&B in Lugano as a starting point
There’s so much to see in the car free centre of picturesque Lugano that you won’t know where to look first. Feast your eyes on the impressive Italian-style buildings, try your luck in the famous casino in Palazzo dei Congressi or stroll along the boulevard. Bordering Lake Lugano the city is built against the hills, which results in a substantial difference in altitude. Don’t forget your hiking shoes! You can catch your breath in, for example, B&B Gabbani or at B&B Guesthouse Castagnola. After a well-earned nights’ sleep and an extensive breakfast a visit to Swissminiatur is recommendable. Here, all the highlights of Switzerland have been recreated in miniature. After your visit, drink a cappuccino on the terrace at the Piazza della Riforma and taste that lovely Italian atmosphere.

A touch of Brazil in Lugano
San Salvatore Mountain: it can’t be missed. Because of this mountain Lugano is also called ‘Little Rio de Janeiro’ because of its similarities to the Brazilian Sugarloaf Mountain. A cable railway takes you to the top of the mountain, from which you have a breath-taking view of Lake Lugano and the city. ”You need to have been up there in person, if you want to get an idea of its greatness and magnificence. And then that moment will become one of the most beautiful and unforgettable experiences in your whole life”, these are the words of German philosopher Lorenz Hirschfeld that can be read on top of the mountain. A beautiful quote to think about when you’re lying in your bed at Bed and Breakfast Elvezia Al Lago.
