We have stayed in Lugano only overnight and spent a few hours in the city and driving up the Monte Bre, which is clearly not enough to enjoy the place fully. Despite this, we fell in love badly with the breathtaking views of the lake, the mountains and the architecture of the city. While Switzerland is quite a small country, you may be surprised by how different it is in every single part. The Italian passion mixed with Swiss luxury is what we could not resist enjoying. What we weren't prepared for that it was hot and humid, with palms, thujas and pine trees in the landscape mixed all together, and tons of insects chirr-chattering in late night bushes outside of our window. It is a place full of beautiful contrasts and stunning views, and we saved all we could in pictures and memories to share with you.
