Lugano Region in autumn

In autumn, throughout the Lugano Region, you’ll still find ideal conditions for leisure activities. In addition to its wonderful Mediterranean climate, the local area offers a vast range of attractions.  Whether you’re a lover of lush greenery, outdoor sports, city breaks, art and culture or exquisite food and wine, you’re bound to have a great time.

Choose one of the region’s innumerable trails for a walk or hike. Against a glorious backdrop of autumn foliage, make your way to the top one of the Lugano region’s four mountaintop viewpoints and gaze in awe at the autumn hues turning the scenery fantastic shades or yellow, orange and russet.

If you’re a sports aficionado, hop on your bike and set off to explore the region’s villages, woods and hills along the countless mountain bike trails. In addition, there are plenty of specially created routes if you’d like to take advantage of the PubliBike service.

The area of course also offers countless possibilities for children.

If you prefer art and culture, you can indulge yourself with one of the many exhibitions organised in the city’s museums, where our Mediterranean lifestyle invariably casts a spell over guests.

At day’s end, savour a glass of fine Ticino wine in friendly company and try the local area’s traditional flavours at one of the many authentic restaurants. Or you can indulge yourself with truly exquisite meals in one of the region’s four Michelin starred restaurants.
