Going to Lugano in June, and the best option seems a flight into Milan/Malpensa. Now I am wondering about the best way to get from the airport to Lugano, and back again. Are there any buses or trains that operate between the airport and Lugano? How about prices? Can I buy tickets in advance? Websites in English?
Thanks a million in advance!
Hello all, I will visit Lugano on 29 October (monday), from 10 am to 7 pm. Will be traveling by train from Milan. Would like some advice on things to do in the city and surroundings.

Hi A friend and I would like to spend three or four days in Locarno over Christmas. I've been before, but a friend has told me that restaurants and bars will be closed over this period (24 - 31 December). Is this true? We don't need a huge variety of options but we will need to eat out and hopefully spend night or two in the bars as well as finding B&B within a couple of kilometres of the town. Can anyone advise me? Would Lugano or Ascona be better options? Thank you!
We are looking for a vacation rental in Locarno, Switzerland close to the center as we use public transportation to explore the area. Does anyone have any recommendations for a vacation flat or condo? If not in Switzerland is there a town in Italy close to the border that would have access to the train line to Locarno. It would wonderful to have a view of the lake.

Hello, Can anyone help me decide where would be best for one day of snowboarding in the Ticino Cantone? We will be traveling by train early in the morning from Zurich making our way to Como for later that night. We wanted to stop for the day at a mountain to hit the slopes. We are concerned with accessibility given that we are traveling by train (then I suppose by bus to get to the mountain?). Thank you.
Hi, I am visiting Italy next week and there is an included day trip to Lugano. My question is should I get some swiss francs? Or do the Restaurants/cafes/shops accept euros? For just a single day trip I really do not know how much I would need? (Or if not to bother if they accept euros?) I would only need to buy lunch and a couple of beers/coffees! Any advice greatly accepted. Thanks, Tony

My husband and I were planning to travel in early September from Lugano to Lucerne via train. We would be picking up a car rental in Lucerne. I am now wondering if we should pick up the car in Lugano and drive to the Interlaken area which we want to visit. (and not go to Lucerne. However, when I googled the map route, it appears that 99km are on an autobaun and 44 km seems to be a very twisty road. Has anyone done this trip and if so, how bad/good is it? Thanks for any suggestions!

I am flying to Europe to go to Locarno for a conference. Is it easier to get to Locarno from Milan or Zurich? I am interested in train service or other convenient quick method.
This is a repost, because for some reason, the original was erased! The question is: where is the best place to purchase a coffee cup, or polo shirt, or hat, etc., with the Chiasso, Switzerland logo? I will be in Chiasso on a Sunday afternoon in the next few months, so the purchase might have to be via the Internet if the stores are all closed. A member here DID reply to the first post, since I even got an email notice of it. But when I tried to follow the link back to the reply, it did not work, and I also discovered my post and the reply had been erased. So, to the person who initially responded, or anyone else who might know, please try again. Thanks!
