Lake Lugano is located in northern Italy, just over the border from Switzerland and the city of Lugano. With its beautiful natural scenery, it is easy to see why Lake Lugano is at the top of many celebritiesâ€™ holiday destination list. Special dishes of the region, such as crispy perch fillets with caper purÃ©e and salad, make for a perfect dinner when combined with a bottle of top-quality wine from the hotel's wine cellars.
