In the heart of the historic city centre, just behind the lakefront promenade, lies Lugano’s principal shopping street.
The chic Via Nassa. With its boutiques, antiquarian bookshops and jewellers’, it elevates window-shopping to an art form; 270 metres of covered arcades make for a shady, pleasant stroll, even in high summer. Mouth-watering food emporia and popular department stores also add to the appeal of Lugano’s top address.
Most shops on the Via Nassa are open on weekdays to 6.30pm and on Saturdays to 5pm. They are closed on Sundays.
