    Excellent nursing staff in Switzerland

During health trips to Switzerland, the positive impact of traditional values in medical care quickly becomes obvious: you will experience precision, reliability, punctuality, friendliness, cleanliness and discretion.

  • Canton Ticino - the sunny side of Switzerland

    Swiss Canton Ticino is the gateway to the south and delights visitors with its charm, Mediterranean lifestyle and Italian language. South of the Alps, the mild climate and impressive landscapes offer the best preconditions for a relaxing, health-enhancing stay. Canton Ticino is extremely easy to reach with several means of public transportation (e.g. the regional Lugano-Airport) and also by means of private transport. The international airport Milano-Malpensa Airport is at about 60 Km from Lugano.

  • That extra something Ticino has to offer

    The Swiss Canton Ticino boasts an unusually high density of clinics and rehabilitation centres. Swiss precision in health care services coupled with Ticino hospitality and Mediterranean flair make Ticino a health care and spa destination that is truly unique. The mild climate and largely unspoilt nature give Ticino the edge when it comes to unparalleled relaxation and treatment experiences, while cultural and sports highlights ensure mental and physical relaxation.

  • Lugano is the new hot spot in medical tourism

    Lugano is the new hot spot in medical tourism and for high specialized medical treatments in Switzerland. Lugano, the largest town in the holiday region of Ticino, is not only Switzerland's third most important financial centre and a conference, banking and business centre, but also a town of parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings. With Mediterranean flair, Lugano offers all the advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small town.

  • Lugano’s cultural offers

    Culture, in its different expressions plays an important role in Lugano’s global image. It is not surprising, therefore, that in the last years the City has devoted huge resources to this sector. Among the most interesting initiatives, we may recall the opening of the new cultural centre of the city of Lugano LAC (photo), the Museum of Cultures at Villa Heleneum that houses the prestigious Serge Brignoni Primitive Art Collection, the important refurbishment of Villa Ciani and the historical museum at Villa Saro.

  • Lugano event’s

    The region of Lugano hosts numerous events all year round, satisfying the widest range of requirements. The winter season is marked by performances and concerts that are held in various halls, while from spring to autumn the fun is mainly outdoor.

  • Shopping in Lugano

    Lugano offers you all of the very best: luxury products, curiosities, antique shops, souvenirs, art, markets in the streets and the big department stores. The Via Nassa for example is one of Lugano’s historical streets - its particular and sophisticated shops will accompany you in your shopping. Under the 270 meter long, ancient city porticoes on the lakeshore, there are many different kinds of shops: jewellery, clothing, gastronomy and anntique shops are just some of the many, without forgetting a few department stores as well.
