ENJOY THE SOUTHERN CLIMATE
Lugano is the largest town in Ticino, the canton that enjoys 2,300 hours of sunshine every year. Spring visits the region early and summer lingers longer than in the rest of Switzerland.
If that isn’t reason enough to visit Lugano, then there is also the spectacular scenery, lush subtropical vegetation and fabulous Mediterranean-influenced cuisine. To get the most out of our beautiful region we will be happy to help you plan and organize business incentive programmes and team-building activities or private excursions, at any time of the year.
