Lugano’s new cultural centre, LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura was created with the aim of adding value to the cultural and artistic life of the city and the region. It is endowed with a concert and theatre hall and a museum, the first in the region designed for this purpose.
The Piazza Cioccaro hosted the nursery school for the second half of the nineteenth century, founded in 1844 in Lugano by Filippo Ciani, which remained in operation until 1892.
With its many bistros and restaurants, Piazza della Riforma is the city’s main place of encounter.
To the West of Piazza Dante and Piazza Cioccaro lies Lugano’s hill. A small altitude difference separates the railroad station from the city centre.
Via Nassa is one of Lugano’s historical streets - its particular and sophisticated shops will accompany you in your shopping.
