Winter in Lugano

Winter in the region of Lugano can be truly magical. The gold and red colours of autumn give way to frost-covered glens and snow-capped peaks, the chill in the air makes your cheeks glow and nose tingle, while shimmering lights of cities beckon.

It's a season that lets you see places in a new light and offers new experiences that you just can't enjoy at any other time of year.
