The Serenity of Lake Lugano

“Stay close to the serenity of a lake to meet your own peace of mind.” – Munia Khan


It was very early and we were on our way to Lugano. Such refreshing scenery to start the day.

Please click image to enlarge.


Lugano, Switzerland is also called “Monte Carlo of Switzerland” because of the many rich and famous who go and visit the place. Lake Lugano is also a popular tourist destination because of its relatively warm climate. It has stunning scenery like this on the promenade… with the alps on the south and Italy just next door.

The churches just near the promenade from left to right:

The Church of Sant’ Antonio Abate in Piazza Dante Alighieri and that is Jack.

Santa Maria deglo Angioli Church is on the shore of Lake Lugano. Also known as The Church of Out Lady of All Angels was built in 1494.

That last one is also from there…just can’t remember what church it is. But lovely wooden door isn’t it?

We had free time to explore the pretty lakeside town and have a cup of coffee. It has beautifully and brightly coloured houses, markets and cobblestone streets.


These are extraordinary times. Some information may have changed due to Covid-19, always check for updates. Stay safe.

    What a pretty town!

    1. Teresa says:

      Such a beauty…I could’ve stayed there forever. But of course as always in a tour, we didn’t stay long.

      1. Toonsarah says:

        That’s the downside of a tour, but you can always use it as an intro to discover places you want to return to and spend more time in

        1. Teresa says:

          That is what’s supposed to happen…but there’s so many places in this world that I would rather visit for the first time than go to somewhere that I have been previously. Oh the problems of life haha

      2. Toonsarah says:

        I know – that’s often how we feel. We very rarely go back anywhere, apart from a few favourite cities like Paris and New York (but even then, we’ve only been to NYC twice!)

        1. Teresa says:

          Yup, we have been to London twice and it’s not because we love it very much….but because my son got married there on my second time there. Well time will tell!

  4. Another beautiful place! Thank you for sharing!
