Lugano is a lakeside city located in southern Switzerland, near the Italian border.

Part of a temperate micro-climate, Lugano offers palm trees, picturesque boulevards, stunning views of the lake and the Alps.

Lugano is home to a number of historic buildings and museums. Outdoor activities focus on Lake Lugano, as well as the surrounding mountains (including 190 mi, or 300 km, of biking trails).

Nearby Monte San Giorgio is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on a pyramid-shaped, wooded mountain beside Lake Lugano that provides the world’s finest fossil record of marine life from the Triassic Period (245–230 million years ago).

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
