Travel Tips from people who've been to Ticino Region
I found just two places to sleep in Fusio.


Antica Osteria Dazio
www.hats.ch

Antica Osteria Dazio has domitory and it costs 29CHF/ night.  This's cheap, isn't this?

But this restaurant didn't have typical Ticino food and and the food wasn't so good.

I ordered pasta but it was too soft....... not al dente.  My husband ordered steak but it was a bit cold.....  (I don't know when the steak was cooked)

The next day, we tried to order Thai food since one of the cook was a Thai lady, but we weren't satisfied with the Thai food as well.

Although the food wasn't good, we had to pay quite a lot. 
The accommodation is ok but I don't recommned you to have dinner here.


Albergo Ristrante Pineta

I don't know the price of the accommodations here but it looked like a bit more expensive than Dazio.  The building was quite new and very clean.

Since we were dissappointed with the food at Dazio, we tried to had dinner at Pineta one day.

Gooood!!! 
Polenta and beaf tasted so nice!!  Even the food was much better than Dazio, the price was almost same. 
The staff were very friendly and we enjoyed the meal and conversation there.

If you don't mind to spend money, you should stay here and have meal here.

If you want to save money, stay at Dazio and have meal at Pineta.

Good tip?

Lugano is a quiet, gentle town that is nestled in the mountains and flows down to a calm, navy blue lake.  I went at the end of April, and the weather was perfect.  There are vibrant gardens that line the water's edge, and farther outside Lugano along the lake, you can trek through the small residential neighborhoods toward Villa Helleneum and its museum.  When I went, they had an exhibit of masks and tribal items from mostly Papau New Guinea for eight Swiss Francs to see.  They do accept Euros in Lugano, but Switzerland is not in the European Union, so they still use their original Swiss Franc.  You may feel the need to exchange money, as the conversion in stores is a bit inflated against you.  I did not take a boat trip around the lake as I was there for one day only.  There are tons of shops, from simple items to souvenirs to high-end fashion labels.  Keep yourself oriented on where the lake is, and you can wander through the streets without buying a map.  Since it is Switzerland, Italian, German, and French in that order were more prevalent, English being used fourth most, though people spoke it well enough.  I had been living in Milano for several months at that point, so I chose to speak Italian rather than use my English.  It makes the trip more memorable to speak in a foreign language.  Plus, when in Rome......
