View on Lake Lugano

The real name of the lake is Ceresio, from the Latin Ceresium, a name of uncertain origin that appeared in 590 AD in a writing by the bishop and historian Gregory of Tours. Don't panic: if you call it Lake Lugano everyone will understand! Lugano is the only major city on its shores, even though the Ceresio is shared with Italy.
