A few days ago we went to Lugano for a long weekend. Both Alex and I love this region of Switzerland. The people, the food, and the atmosphere make anyone feel welcomed. We make sure to go at least once a year to catch up with our friends and relax. In this article, I want to share with you what to do in Lugano for a long weekend. If you visit the city, don’t forget to
Hotel Splendide Royal, Riva Antonio Caccia 7, 6900 Lugano. It is our go-to address. Situated on the bank of the Lake Lugano, the Hotel Splendide Royal combines tradition, modernity, and understated elegance. We have stayed in the hotel last time we visited Lugano and when we learned that it now has a new, modern spa with an indoor pool and gym, we knew we had to come back. I love the traditional rooms, generous breakfast, and legendary hospitality.
