Lugano Round-up

To finish with our Lugano trip, here are a few pictures which haven't made it onto the blog yet.
On Wednesday, we were fortunate enough to meet up with Malcolm's Swiss family, who had all come down to Lugano to see us and treated to lunch. From the terrace of the Ana Capri Restaurant, we had a great view over the city towards Monte Bre, where we would be on Friday. Spot the Alpine Swifts!
The dominant feature of the city from here was the tower of Lugano Cathedral, seen here through the flower stems of lavender.
Some of the best views were from the summit of San Salvatore.
From there, we could look down onto our hotel - with a swimming pool on the roof!
Back down to city level, by funcular...
At the lake-side, the reflections were good too..
and from out on the water, we had far-reaching views along the length of the lake.
Little did we know at the time, that the water was home to some exotic species too. This invasive species of Red-eared Terrapin or Pond Slider has become a nuisance all over the world and it seems that Lugano has not escaped the invasion.
So, lets finish with a last view of Lugano - both lake and city - from Monte San Salvatore and look back on another lovely holiday in Switzerland.
