Located on the magnificent sprawl of Lake Maggiore (is it more beautiful than Lake Lugano? Always a debate…), Locarno offers a unique Swiss-Italian flavour. Wander the old town, full of colourful buildings, hidden arcades, lovely piazzas, and a thriving restaurant scene. Play on the beach, take a boat trip to the islands of Brissago or Borromeo, or ride a cable car to one of countless spots that boast sweeping panoramic views. Locarno offers countless things to do, including a diverse events calendar. Every year Piazza Grande hosts the momentous Locarno International Film Festival and brings world-class pop and rock acts to the city for the Moon & Stars Festival. The surrounding hills include some of Ticino’s most prestigious homes.
Ascona has delighted visitors for more than a century. Writers, artists, international jet-setters, and executives have enjoyed glamourous holidays at some of Switzerland’s best luxury hotels and spas. Others have set up semi-permanent or permanent residence to experience a delightful lifestyle year-round. The charming centre dates from the 16th century and offers unique boutiques and fine art galleries tucked away on narrow, cobbled alleys. Gourmands enjoy excellent restaurants featuring rare regional wines and artisanal cheeses and breads. The lakeside piazza and promenade hosts the annual Jazz Ascona festival with more than 200 free concerts on the lakefront.
