European Road Trip :: Day 6 :: Italian Switzerland ~ Lugano

On our second day full day, the weather prediction was pretty bad (16C and rainy!) So we decided to drive 2 hours south to a town near the Italian border called Lugano. Several people recommended it to us and it was AMAZING! Right in the middle of the town is this amazing, emerald lake. It was sunny and 30C and the boys had a blast!

We parked underground, then walked along the promenade to a beautiful park. We ate our packed lunch by the marina with a gorgeous view, then explored the park.

There was this fun little beach, but we preferred sitting in the shade and letting the boys play in the shallow river. They started with their clothes on and by the end had nothing on!

After that we rented a motor boat! It was so fun to cruise the lake and daddy and the boys even jumped off the boat to go swimming!!

Eating out for dinner for mommy's birthday in the old square of town, followed by yummy ice cream!

Then we made our way home, after a wonderful day! The views were gorgeous and we stopped at this mountain lake to stretch our legs.

The boys really wanted a picture of a train! So this is for them :)
