Lugano is a beautiful city but it's hard to do it justice if you're not on a banker's salary.
One surprisingly cheap option is to hire one of the boats on the waterfront and explore the lake. The views are wonderful and you can make it over to restaurants on the other side.
Just walk along the main waterfront, the hire places are easy to spot.
There is so much to recommend about Lugano: the weather, the relaxed atmosphere, the view of the lake. When visiting this beautiful city, be sure to stay at Hotel Dante. One of the best hotels we have stayed at in Switzerland.
They have some good special offers on their site.
