In our live webcam you can clearly see the famous Lake Lugano, which flows on the border of two states – Italy and Switzerland. Basically Lake Lugano is located in the Swiss canton of Ticino. Its smaller part is located in the Italian province of Como.
The area of Lake Lugano, which is perfectly visible in our online camera, is approximately 48.8 sq. km. The greatest depth is 288 m. Lake Lugano was founded due to the two glaciers collision. As a result, a reservoir of unusual shape was formed.
The climate of Lake Lugano is typically Mediterranean. Although, from time to time there is a north wind from the mountains.
In Lake Lugano, which you see in the live broadcast, there are different types of fish. Therefore, there are always a lot of fishermen.
On the shores of Lake Lugano, which you can see in the online webcam, there are two cities: Lugano and Morcote.
Lugano is a cozy resort city with a rich metropolis life. If you will come to Lugano, take a look at the Fine Arts Museum with works of Paul Klee, Edgard Degas and other famous Swiss artists.
Besides, it is interesting to visit the great Palace – the famous work of Swiss sculpture Mario Botta. And finally, take a look at the San Lorenzo Cathedral.

The canton of Ticino, which owns most of Lake Lugano in our live stream camera, is located in the south of the Alpine Mountains. The official language is Italian, the administrative center is the city of Bellinzona.
The canton of Ticino is full of contrasts. There are white snow glaciers, alpine valleys, green hills with olive trees and vineyards, botanical gardens and lakes.

Bellinzona is a fabulous town full of castles and fortresses. Ascona is a real copy of the French resort of Cannes. It is immersed in greenery, and at every step there are luxury boutiques or an expensive restaurants. Listed above, bordering Italy – Lugano is located at Lake Lugano shore: see it in the online webcam. The ancient city of Locarno is a real aristocratic place. There are many medieval temples here.
