How to get to Lugano
You can fly directly to the Lugano Airport, located about 15 minutes from the College in the village of Agno. From the airport, shuttle buses and taxis run regularly to Lugano. The airport is served by Darwin Airline, FlyBaboo and Swiss with flights to Lugano connecting via Zurich, Geneva, Rome and other European cities. Since many international flights arrive in Zurich and Milan, you can also make bus or train connections from either of the two cities to Lugano. From Zurich, trains run directly from the airport to Lugano, and the duration of the trip is about 3 hours. From Milan, there are bus shuttle services that arrive in Lugano in just over one hour.
