I have been 3 times at luzern, always going at the one of our supplier's factory, that's why I can't make tourism for the zone( I work from 8 to 17h ) I miss the Mount Rigi :(
Luzern is something stange, It's a city but you feel that you're in a town.
On Lucerne the people talks mainly German and could be Italian, so you're advised, no french!
I suggest to visit the old town, city Walls and explore them, climb to the Hotel Deutz (Now closed) an incredible forest and sights to the city, the Kappel Brucke and if you have time take a train to the Rigi mount and take a ship and do a tour:

And of course to the Rathaus Brauerei : http://www.rathausbrauerei.ch/ Each afternoon I go there to have a drink;) home made beer really good and for lunch....I DON'T REMEMBER, REALLY!
For arriving to Luzern you only have 2 options, by train o by road.
The swiss trains (SBB CFF FFS) are incredible confortable and noiselees it's amazing and also extremely expensive 17 Euros for a single train ticket (1h 15m for 80km) 2ºClass I recommend it!
If I remember something else I will update this review..enjoy!
