    • Lugano Train station to Agno airport.

      Lugano Jul 2, 2014 at 2:25 PM

      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.

      Train Travel Lugano to St Moritz, Glacier Express to Zermatt, the Geneva?

      Lugano May 10, 2014 at 10:22 PM

      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.

      Lugano and William Tell Express

      Lugano Mar 25, 2014 at 6:03 AM

      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.

      Best way to get from Lugano to Serpiano or Milan/Malpensa to Serpiano?

      Cantone Ticino May 27, 2013 at 10:46 AM

      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 :)

      Best connection between Milan (Malpensa) and Lugano?

      Lugano Apr 9, 2013 at 1:39 PM

      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!

    • Christmas in Locarno?

      Locarno Oct 9, 2012 at 9:34 AM


      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.
