Traveling to Lugano was not in my schedule because I had to travel a long way to get here, in order to reach the town of Lugano, I had to cross the Lake Como, one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe, which was a unique experience.
Lake Lugano is nestled between Lake Maggiore and Lake Como and lies partly in Switzerland and partly in Italy. It’s footprint straddles the Swiss-Italian border with 67% of its surface area falling within the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland, and 33% of it in the Lombardy Region of Northern Italy.

Cycling from Switzerland to Italy
After a few days in Lugano, I decided to ride Cristina’s bike from Lugano to over side of Lake Lugano, That’s where it belongs to Italy.I wish that there would be noborder between all the countries of the world, so we traveled and learned.
⛔️Just because you need a helmet for cycling, Cristina asked me to wear my helmet , but Iranian people always swim against the water.
🚳And then, I went to the highway with an unprofessional bike, which meant catastrophic, All cars hugged me and finally one of them stopped and They asked “where did you come from?” I said, very proudly Iran, He said “It is illegal to enter the bike to the highway ,If the police sees you, it will penalize you” of course, there was no way except for the highway.
