There's no place quite like Lugano: especially with kids, and especially around Easter time. I've done quite some extensive research as to where to go, when, and somehow as soon as Easter rolls around, I'm really stuck for options. Most cities are either too packed, too cold still or then they simply shut down for four consecutive days. That may be great for a bit of much needed R&R, but small kiddos need action.
Lugano most definitely provides and never disappoints. Each year the city goes to great lengths to organize all sorts of entertainment and treats for the little ones, something they call "Pasqua in Città". This year was no exception. From a myriad of entertainment on Piaza Manzoni to the annual Easter egg hunt ending with chocolate treats in the beautiful Parco Ciani, the kids were spoilt for things to do and see. Ill admit that the weather this year could have been better. But, having spoken to friends, I appreciate it could also have been a lot worse.
