On a holiday in Lugano, lakeside

If you travel during religious holidays in Europe, you may find that the town you’re visiting is shut down. This blog post is what to do on a holiday in Lugano, Switzerland. This last Christmas season, my husband and I hit the train tracks and decided to catch some rays in sunny Lugano. While December 23 and 24 were lively with many artisanal stands and restaurants — December 25 was… pretty dead.

Should you find that the town you’re visiting has shuttered its doors and windows, visit a luxury hotel.

Not ones to be deterred by a lack of activity in the streets, we decided to get a glass of champagne at the Hotel Splendide along the lake. What a nice surprise! There was live music, loads of champagne, a gorgeous wine room.

Thanks to my husband’s decades-long experience working with hotels and restaurants, he knew immediately that a luxury hotel like Hotel Splendide would be open. What a delight! We captured some of the excitement on camera. View our YouTube clip here:

Of  course, the hotel would love to host you for a night’s stay during this time. And you can visist the link above to book your stay. (You get the deal you find on Booking.com, and I earn a small commission should you end up making a purchase by clicking on that link.)

My husband and I hadn’t thought that things would be closed, so we booked a room in what we thought would be the center of all the action: Hotel Dante. This is an excellent hotel with no restaurant, but it is so conveniently located. The funicular that takes you to the train station is right by the entrance. Also at it’s footstep is “il centro” (the city center), so anything and everything you’re looking for is only steps away!

You can also take in the views along the lake. One of the benefits of everything being closed is that you can wander around without F.O.M.O. (fear of missing out). The promenade along the lake is the perfect vantage point to take in the surrounding beauty. Also, several artists have given their sculptures and art to the city in order to have them displayed lakeside, to be enjoyed by tourists and wildlife.
