We had heard the horror stories of attempting to conquer Disney with a toddler. The tales of long lines, the hot Orlando sun and no available reservations for lunch and dinner.

One of the best things about Switzerland is the diversity in their cultures and languages…take for instance the city of Lugano, located in southern part of Switzerland…which is the Italian part of this tiny country.
