A very nice square worth visiting as you walk around town. We took the time to have a drink at one of the many cafes around it. You'd think they'd be extremely expensive for such a spot, but they are regular Swiss prices.

We drove into Lugano from Stresa to stay for 5 days. Started out walking all around to get oriented. Walked around the plaza, nothing going on. City Hall seems to be main attraction. Lots of high end stores to window shop. Can sit in plaza...More

This is not a real people magnet like most of the piazzas around Europe. Too many modern buildings to generate the attraction of people to just hang out...

A very charming square plus walk around the lake. Ice cream and a pizza dinner alfresco in one of the many dining spots where you can see the world go by.
