Lugano and Foxtown Outlet were our destinations. They are in Switzerland, an hour fifteen minute away from Milano by train. When you are with family make sure you always early by an hour to wherever your going. We planned to take the 9:10 am train to Lugano but we took the one after which is 11:10 am, for sure you know why. Right !!
The lake has Magical Sceneries. Just 10 minutes before reaching Lugano, the beautiful lake sceneries begin. From Lugano train station we took a taxi to the outlet which cost us 80 Euros knowing that 4 tickets Milano/Lugano were about 80 Euros. Foxtown outlet mall was a lie. It was a mall but not outlet. Items had only 20% to 40% discount and very few items had more. I think shopping in Milano was much better or else try italy outlets, at least italian brands might be cheaper. None of us liked it.
90 Euros Taxi to get back to Lugano train station. We walked down to the centre, about 1 km but kind of sloppy. You can also use a cable car service. I had a beautiful peaceful image for Lugano but that was not what i found out. Swiss Harley days, from Friday, 08 July to 10 july 2011. The down town had a stage with hard rockers singing And thousands of Harley bikes all around. People with tattoo’s and black leather drinking bear. Perfect Contradiction. Although it was very noisy and crowded but we had enjoyed it. We have spent 4 hours in Lugano walking around and eating Gelato. We walked back to the station, it was tiring but they wanted it. We took the last train back to Milano which was 9:45 pm.
For me it was fine, i wanted to do some more but since mi familia Loved it then all is good. That was day 2.
