This is true, though i'd definately say it gives character to the city, and you can tell you're near Italy too

Wow, this thread was nearly reaching page 4 I was going to wait untill i made better pics but i guess it's best to update with something:

These were shots taken from the back of a moving bus, so please don't complain for the blur, it was with a camera phone

Downtown - Following Bus Line 4 (From central FFS railways station to central TPL/ARL bus station):

Thanks for the comment.

Anyway, as promised a while ago, i finally took shots of Downtown, more than 120 photos! Including Casinň Lugano, as someone requested back in the thread.

I need to know, do you guys want me to post them all at once? Or say 20 at a time?

I'm loving all these gritty photos!!!! Keep it up man!

As for the downtown photos, either post 'em piece by piece, or create a specific thread for downtown Lugano
