20. Vacation memories: Lugano (part 4)

We visited the southern Swiss-Italian city of Lugano while vacationing in Switzerland. You can read about our adventures in this colourful, almost Mediterranean town in part 1, part 2 and part 3.


Up, up, up the cobblestone steps we were led by the GPS in search of churches, before making our way back to Bellinzona and then into our little mountain village.

The final church we saw looked more like a cathedral than a church. It was forbidden to take photos of the interior so we obeyed the rules and admired the old art and architecture without social media. (What a concept. 😂)

I did take a few photos of our trip up the narrow streets, and of the exterior of the church and its surrounding scenery (two short videos).

Of course the girl child had to try out every water fountain we came across. And lucky there were so many, it was HOT!
This is the way up to the Lugano train station. We (um..the others) opted walking up the steps rather than take the little tram. Ahem. 🙂


And so concluded a very busy, very hot, very tourist-y day in Lugano. It was a wonderful and different way to spend the day, and I hope lasting memories were made as well.

  2. I can’t imagine what it must be like to live somewhere where all the roads are so steep. It fascinated me when I visited San Francisco years ago – wondering if the people that live on those roads are fitter than most ?
