Lugano, Ticino

Lugarno. Very steep lanes, classy shops, numerous squares (many with temporary entertainment stages because of a festival), beautiful lake and surrounding mountains, Italian conversations passing by, a historical funicular to the top of Monte Bre with cafes and sectacular views, streets in the old town that twist and turn and a railway station that gets my vote for the most inaccessible because you have to climb up and up steep lanes to get there.

Free movie in one of the squares. It was a documentary about Nini, a female Swiss mountain climber of the 1930s.

A very healthy vegetable garden in the main street.

The funicular that took me up Monte Bre.

Here we are on Monte Bre. I met Gemma and Glenn there after they did
an mountain hike and stayed overnight in a mountain hut
(which included a four-course meal and breakfast provided).
