Lugano is a city in the Italian speaking canton of Ticino in southern Switzerland. It is the largest city in the canton and the biggest Italian speaking city outside of Italy. Due to its particularly warm summers and the increasing number of celebrities who visit the city, Lugano is known as the "Monte Carlo of Switzerland". It is one of the most popular cities in the country for tourism due to having 17 Swiss heritage sites of national importance. The city is also a favourite with those who enjoy outdoor activities.
Rent a car in Lugano and spend the day learning about the history of chocolate at the Alprose Chocolate Museum. You will discover all aspects of chocolate production by observing all of the processes it goes through to become the traditional chocolate bar. You even get to sample anything from the entire Alprose collection. Just south of Lugano in Montagnola you will find the 'Hermann Hesse Museum'. He was a Nobel Prize winning author who spent half of his life living here.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
