Enjoy the comfortable 90-minute journey on the coach as you cross the border into Switzerland for this exciting site-seeing extravaganza in Lugano, located about 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the Italian border.
After your arrival in the Italian-speaking Swiss city, stroll along the cobblestoned streets to be dazzled by the intimate cobblestone squares and the elegant arcaded walkways. Stroll down the pedestrianized Via Nassa, where ample amounts of luxury shops exist. Spend some time in verdant Ciani Park, crammed with exotic flowers and plants and dotted with sculptures and fountains.
Experience the quintessential Alpine scenery — soaring mountain peaks, green meadows and glistening blue water — on a 1-hour cruise on the shimmering Lake Lugano.
Take a break for lunch (at own expense) in one of the city’s lovely cafes or taverns. After lunch, stroll over to Mt. San Salvatore to take a funicular to the top. Marvel at the views of Lugano and the surrounding countryside. In the afternoon, take some free time to do whatever you like, perhaps do some shopping for famous Swiss products, such as chocolate.
Then in the afternoon hop back on the coach for the relaxing ride back to Milan.
