Monte Carlo of Switzerland
Located in the popular holiday region of Ticino, Lugano is the largest Italian-speaking town in Switzerland. The city represents an important banking and business center, but offers more than just stiff suits.

Because of the growing numbers of celebrities and professional athletes visiting the city, Lugano has earned the nickname Monte Carlo of Switzerland. The warm summer weather, tropical palm trees, and lakeshore boulevards make Lugano a popular holiday destination. Lugano is in Canton of Ticino.
