Lugano Overview

Lugano is the largest town of the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino. It is situated on the shore of lake Lugano, where the river Cassarate reaches the lake, between the mountains of Bre and San Salvatore( both these moutains can be reached by cable lifts).
The first history recordings of Lugano date from around 875 and its name comes from the latin "lucus" (sacred wood).
