Discover paths lined with statues and fountains amidst the meticulously kept English lawn. The park is divided into two sections: one features Italian and English gardens, with manicured flower beds and tree species from around the world, while the other is more wild, with a forest of oak, lime, plane, and maple trees. This area also houses the natural history museum and a convention center.

  • Is above all a perfectly preserved Park from experts and loving gardeners, all year round, there are no less than 20 different types of birds, in addition to waterfowl, is ideal for families with children to whom is reserved an area with toys and with regular maintenance, for adults reading area with lounge chairs and a decent small library , all free. Finally in summer a small Bay with beach allows sunbathing and water into the Lake. In short, a pleasant place for relaxation and beyond.

Where to stay in Lugano

Picturesque Lugano is known for its deep blue bay and the palm tree-lined waterfront promenade--so it only makes sense to stay close to the heart of the city, the lake. Surrounding the bay are a number of mid-range to high-priced hotels and quaint bed and breakfasts. With such an emphasis on the lake, most of the high-rise hotels have arranged their rooms and balconies in such a way that everyone has a lake view. These waterfront hotels put Lugano a step above its neighboring contenders, outbidding them in style, natural beauty, and sophistication.
