Lugano, Lake

The middle section of the lake is spanned by a multiarch bridge, over which the railroad and highway linking the cities of Bellinzona (Switzerland) and Como (Italy) pass. The city of Lugano (Switzerland) is on the north shore. There are numerous resorts on the shores, and the lake attracts tourists.
