Hello (again!)

Hi,

In a few short weeks I shall be moving back to Switzerland.

I previously lived in Lausanne, but left after a few months for another job.

But now, I'm due to return - but this time to Lugano.

Now, I know nothing of the area, I don't speak Italian and I know no one there! I'm hoping this forum (like last time) will help me get settled back in!

Anyone else live in that area?

Simon

Feel free to give a shout if there's something specific that's bugging you (re. Ticino, that is).

Re: Hello (again!)

Right, I have a question for those that know Lugano!

Work has found me two possible apartments which are on Via Tesserete and Via Al Ponte. Prices seem to be about right.

Are these good areas to be in? Thoughts?

They an both be good areas. You'd have to have a look at the building itself, though. Both are well served in terms of public transport. Via al Ponte is closer to the train station....

Go and have a first hand look...that's the first thing.

Ciao

Re: Hello (again!)

Sadly am on the wrong continent to go for a look!

Am doing this all by email and photos.

Luckily these places will let me have a 3mth contract....

Thanks for the info though. At least I know that part of things is good...
