Lugano Como – Is it possible to have the best of two worlds? The answer is…
For those who are looking for a way to get to Como from Lugano, or just want to make a short Lugano Como trip.
Lugano Como, has to be the so most famous tour or trip that the majority of tourists like to do. Most of the tourists just need to know more about the ways of getting there when they’re staying in Lugano, or when are only passing by and most of them are only looking for a day trip option.
However from our experience, and based on our costumers opinions, the best is to stay in Lugano for the weekend. The reason is simple.
If you’re starting your trip from Lugano, you’ll definitely need half a day to visit the city. Yes, Lugano Lake works only as a good “appetizer”. The main “dish” is Lake Como, definitely!
But the problem is, that if you’re looking to visit or to know the entire Lake Como, you’ll have a logistic problem.
You see, Lake Como with its 146 square kilometres (56 sq mi) of area, makes it the third-largest lake in Italy. This means that you’ll need at least two days travelling and running it around and there are lots of little villages around this lake, like Menaggio, Bellagio or even Domaso that are worth of visiting. But if you are short of time, then you have to choose a strategic place to stay. A place that isn’t far from all these little villages as the Lake Como it self. A 30 min. driving distance place to all these places. A place like Lugano.
Yes, if you stay in Lugano the Lugano Como distance is about 30 minutes driving by car, the same for Lugano Menaggio, where you can take the ferry to cross the Lake Como and reach Bellagio (with some fortune you might even see George Clooney!).
Our point is, why spending so much time doing the entire tour around Lake Como when you can have the best of two worlds. To stay in Lugano in of the most beautiful cities of Switzerland that distances exactly 30 minutes driving from all these also beautiful places around Como.
It should at least deserve a thought, doesn’t it?
