Lugano Private Walking Tour

Welcome to Lugano, the capital of the Swiss canton of Ticino, where Switzerland has an Italian accent. This city rose out of its strategic position, just below the best alpine passes. These passes were used by Celts, leaving their mark. The same was done by the Romans, leaving in Lugano the oldest sacred building in Switzerland. Due to the Italian culture and influence, Lugano has Mediterranean ambience, with its sunshine, vegetation, inviting lake, and shopping. But there is more to Lugano than shopping and relaxation, so come with us to discover the ancient history of this beautiful city.
