The lake owes its name to Lugano, which lies directly on the shore and is the most populous city in Ticino with just under 64,000 inhabitants. Lugano is one of the most important economic centres in Switzerland, alongside Genevaand Zurich.

Many holidaymakers use a holiday apartment on Lake Lugano as a starting point for day trips to towns and landscapes in Northern Italy and Italian-speaking Switzerland. Milan is 78 kilometres from Lugano and can be easily reached by car in one and a half hours, Como in around forty minutes. Lake Maggiore and the towns of Ascona and Locarno on its shores are also ideal destinations for excursions.
