Lugano ( Swiss)
Lugano, the largest town in the holiday region of Ticino, is not only Switzerland's third most important financial centre and a conference, banking and business centre, but also a town of parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings. With Mediterranean flair, Lugano offers all the advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small town.

St. Charles Statue
The statue of Saint Charles stands on the top of a hill just above Arona. Not everyone knows that Frédéderic Auguste Bartholdi,who designed the Statue of Liberty,stayed in Arona to study the statue's structure. A plaque can be found at the foot of the statue of Liberty commemorsting the inspiration given by the St. Charles statue, now no longer the largest statue in the world.
