Travel

Lugano is situated in Ticino, the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland, close to the Italian border. The city is extremely easy to reach by means of both public and private transportation. It has a very convenient regional airport with direct connections. Furthermore, the international airport of Milano-Malpensa is located at only 60 km from Lugano and is served by means of a coach service and, from June 2018, a train service.

By Air

Lugano Airport, located at Lugano-Agno, is 6 km from the city centre. The airport is small and therefore has short check-in and boarding operations (20 minutes before departure) and offers daily connections between Ticino and the main Swiss cities of Zurich and Geneva and the Italian capital Rome. Details of transport to/from the airport can be found at: https://www.luganoairport.ch/en/to-from-airport/

Milan-Malpensa International Airport is located 60 km from Lugano. The airport is conveniently serviced by different bus connections, with the trip taking about 1 hour. Detailed information on timetables and ticket prices can be found on the websites of the operating companies:

Malpensa-Express – Giosy Tours
Lugano Services
Jetbus

Lugano is also connected by train to Milan-Malpensa, with the trip taking approx. 1 hr 45 minutes. Prices, timetables and online bookings can be found by visiting https://www.sbb.ch/en or https://www.trenord.it/en.

Other alternatives are Milan-Linate and Bergamo-Orio al Serio airports, both in Italy, connected to Milan by bus and then to Lugano by train.

By Rail

The Swiss National Railway is extremely long and allows you to conveniently reach Lugano from the rest of Switzerland and from other international destinations. From the railway station, the Congress Hall can either be reached on foot (approx. 15 minutes) or by means of public transportation: funicular or bus.

By Road

Lugano is on the international Gothard motorway (Zurich-Chiasso-Milan) which directly connects Northern Europe with the Mediterranean.

It is possible to park in the multi-storey car park right in front of the Congress Hall, located under Piazza Castello. Other city centre car parks are available within walking distance.

All delegates staying in a hotel, hostel or camping in the Ticino region and subject to the full tourist tax are entitled to the Ticino Ticket – a pass valid for the duration of their stay. Ticino Ticket holders can use – free of charge – the regular public transportation system (including trains, buses and postal buses of the “Arcobaleno Community”) and receive a discount on cable cars, funicular and other tourist attractions. Details are available at: https://www.ticino.ch/en/ticket.html
