Full description
Discover the historical side of Lugano with a passionate local who wants to share all the best kept secrets of Lugano with you. Your excursion will start in front of the building of Museo delle Culture. There you will learn about the various architectural styles from different time periods, and will also find out how the city has changed over time. From visiting churches to discovering the history behind the Statua Carlo Battaglini or the church Santa Maria Immacolata, you will encounter unique sites that an ordinary tour won’t show you. Your guide knows that traveling is the best way of learning, and having a knowledgeable local by your side to give you insider tips and share local secrets is even better. Of course, if you wish to learn about something in particular or have a special interest, just let your guide know and they can tailor the itinerary to you.
