As Lugano is situated close to the Italian border, it does feel like you are in Italy and not in Switzerland. It still has the beautiful views of the mountains and lakes. There are plenty of piazzas, fountains, quaint streets, restaurants, gelato places and shops that make up Lugano.
Al Vaporetto has two branches and the one that we dined at was its San Marco branch. It has paper placemats on the table showing a map of the area of Venice.
