Find Businesses and Services in Luino, Lombardy

Situated on a wide plain on the mouth of Valtravaglia, Luino is the most important town of the Lombardian shore. It is a typical European town on the lake, with a Mediterranean habitat.

Luino is well known for its weekly market, currently held on Wednesdays, which is purportedly the largest of its kind in Europe. It is also surrounded by impressive scenery, and this combination makes the town a popular destination for tourists, especially from Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands.

The town's railway station is also of historic importance, being on what was once the sole route to the Gotthard Rail Tunnel over the Monte Ceneri Pass, which will be replaced by the Ceneri Base Tunnel in the near future. It is still served both by Italian and Swiss state railway companies.

One phenomenon which is extremely widespread is the practice of local residents who travel every day to work in Switzerland. These so called frontalieri make Luino and neighbouring towns and villages dormitory towns to some extent.
