Nestled in the southern foothills of the Alps, Lugano is an idyllic spot to learn Italian in Switzerland. A picturesque town of cobbled streets and cafes, set on a magnificent lake, Lugano offers the visitor a wealth of experiences.

Our LSI partner school is located right in the heart of Lugano, around 300m from the lake on one side and the university on the other, and close to shops and cafes. A three-star hotel adjoins the language school and offers students special rates -  see for details. Whichever of our Italian courses and programmes you choose, you will benefit from excellent facilities, including free internet access and highly experienced teachers.

LSI Lugano offers a fun and varied Social programme designed to help you improve your Italian language skills while making new friends and enjoying all that the area has to offer. Popular activities include visiting the annual jazz and film festivals, and taking part in sports such as skiing, white water rafting and even bungee jumping.
