Hey! I will be visiting Lugano in early April and wanted to do a wine tasting or wine tour. Any recommendations?
I understand I could spend days exploring Bellinzona, but my trip is short. Would it be practical to stop and tour Castelgrande while travelling from Milano Centrale to Luzern by train? How much time should I allow for the tour? Thanks
We are 4 senior citizens planning a trip in Fall 2015. Are there any minivans or large taxis for hire to drive us from Lugano to Menaggio, Italy. We just don't want the hassle of luggage etc. What are good wweb sites for this information. I could not seem to find anything through general Google search. Thanks NanaPat

My friends will travel from Milan to Lugano Railway station. From there , they will need to go to the Agno Airport to catch a flight. Since they will have quite some luggage, would you recommend them to take a Taxi, or the FLP train till Agno station?
- How much should a taxi cost from Lugano station to the Agno Airport?
- If they travel by train, would it be easy to go to the airport from Agno station with all the luggage by foot or by taxi?
Thank you for a quick answer.

I have just found out how to travel from Rome to Lugano by train. I actually wish to travel to Saint Moritz for an overnight stay before travelling on the Glacier Express train to Zermatt for 2 night stay and then train to Montreau or Geneva ( maybe overnight stay and then train to Paris.
Would Swiss Rail Pass - 3 days be the best for:
- Lugano to Saint Moritz
- St Moritz to Zermatt on the Glacier Express
- Zermatt to Geneva
- Would there be any additional payment when the Swiss Card is used for the glacier Express?
- Is 2 nights essential in Zermatt?
- Any recommendations for good accommodation with bathroom (3 star min) and close to rail station for Lugano, St Moritz, Zermatt, and Geneva
Train To Paris.
Will the Swiss Card cover this trip or should I book through the French Rail System? Have travelled previously Paris to Basel.
Appreciate all advice.
Are there any places to rent road bikes in Lake lugano?
I hope to travel from Menaggio, Lake Como, Italy to Lugano May 2014. My intention is to travel by bus. While I am aware there are buses between these destinations, I am not sure which bus service does the trips to and from Italy or where in Menaggio or Lugano the buses arrive and depart from.
Could someone help with this information and the cost for a round trip please?
Thank you in advance of your help.
Where can we expect to find snow around mid-April near Locarno

We have three nights in Lugano in mid-May. I had planned two days of walks and maybe a little sailing, but then noticed the William Tell Express. Would it be worth it to spend one day doing the WT as a round trip - or are the views in Lugano somewhat representative of the rest of the trip? We will be coming from Milan.
Any extra comments or Lugano tips welcome. ps. we are not nightclubbers.

A while ago I posted a question about getting from Milan's Malpensa Airport to Lugano, and got some good replies.
Then when I checked about getting to the hotel, I realised that getting to Lugano was the easy bit, getting to the hotel in Serpiano was the difficult part... The hotel suggested I take the shuttle bus from Malpensa to Mendrisio and from there a bus service to the hotel.
That is fine, but my flight arrives in the morning, meaning that I would have to wait from until night before getting a connection that will actually stop in Mendrisio.
Do you have any good suggestions on how to either get from Lugano to Serpiano (Albergo Serpiano) or from Malpensa to Serpiano?
Bearing then in mind that my Italian is on the level "can understand some written language" ;)
Thanks a million :)
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!
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. Unfortunately I noticed that the Bernina Express Rail Tour is not available on mondays. Is there another tour I can make in order to see nice mountain views?
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?
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.
Could someone tell me what's the speciality of Lugano please?
Could someone tell me is there any interesting flea market in Lugano please?
I know the Luino flea market is on Wednesday but our visit will be from Friday to Sunday, leaving Monday, therefore I would really appreciate if someone could tell me where to visit the flea market.
One of my travel companions is looking to do some horseback riding while we are in Switzerland. Does anyone know if there are any outfitters in Lugano?
