Lake Lugano is a glacial lake which is situated on the border between southern Switzerland and northern Italy. The lake, named after the city of Lugano, is situated between Lake Como and Lago Maggiore. It was cited for the first time by Gregory of Tours in 590 with the name Ceresio, a name which is said to have derived from the Latinword cerasus, meaning cherry, and refers to the abundance of cherry trees which at one time adorned the shores of the lake. The lake appears in documents in 804 under the name Laco Luanasco.
Well-known mountains and tourist destinations on the shores of the lake are Monte Brè to the east, Monte San Salvatore west of Lugano, and Monte Generoso on the south-east shore. The World Heritage Site Monte San Giorgio is situated south of the lake.

Nie mogliśmy sobie odebrać przyjemności wjechania funicularem na samotną skalę San Salvatore, ktora wisi pionowo nad jeziorem. Dzieki Swiss Travel Pass niektore kolejki sa za free albo za pół ceny. Widok bajkowy. Łamany przez baśniowy.
