Lugano ⎯ Experience the Festival
Participating in the LongLake Festival certainly offers the chance to discover not only Lake Lugano and its highlights, but also the city centre.
Here you will find lidos, shops, bars, restaurants, museums and art galleries for an all-round experience.
For nature lovers, just a stone’s throw from the centre, Monte San Salvatore and Monte Brè offer breath-taking scenery. Don’t be alarmed, if you don’t feel up to going up on foot, there is a convenient funicular railway to reach both summits.
Not to missed
The bathing facilities are open during the following periods:
- Lugano Lido: 1 May to 17 September
- Carona swimming pool: 1 June to 3 September
- Lido San Domenico: 1 June to 17 September
- Lido Riva Caccia: 1 June to 17 September
Motorboat and Pedalo boat Hire
Lugano’s famous ‘retro pedalo‘ can be hired daily at Rivetta Tell and Riva Albertolli.
Pedalo boats (3 or 4 persons) and motorboats (5-6 persons, without licence) can be hired.
Monte San Salvatore and Monte Brè have always offered spectacular views just minutes away from the festival venues.
Suitable destinations not only for hikers, but also for food lovers thanks to two panoramic restaurants from which one can see a large part of the Lugano region.
