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......

What can I say about my city... Lugano... Lugano is everything... You have almost everything here and you're near almost everything, 2 hours by train from Zurich, 1 hour from Milan, 30 minutes from Como, in Winter 2 hours from skiing-places, and in summer 2 hours from the sea in Liguria. Lugano is full of everything, you have the mountains, the hills, the lake, the parks, sun in summer and snow in winter... You can go to museums and walk on the lake -side and in the parks... In the the evening you can find some good restaurants (almost of every country from chinese to mexican to italian to the tipical grotti ticinesi) and then go play blackjack at the Casino or dance at Club One, Privilege, Pascia or La Roy... You can find almost every type of accomodation, from the cheapest 1 hotels from the luxury of the 5 star hotels on the lake side in Lugano, Paradiso or Castagnola... This is Lugano...
