Ticino



Locarno festival

Ticino is a very interesting part of Switzerland; it's the wedge of warm country that's almost completely surrounded by Italy. The culture here is decidedly Italian, and you'll hear Italian spoken just about everywhere, yet the Ticino has been controlled by the Swiss since the early 1500s.

The climate is mild and the plants sub-tropical, the canton of Ticino is stunningly beautiful. The Ticino is a great place for a walking, bicycle, or driving tour.

For walking, try the region north of Biasca, where the Sentiero Basso will take you on the west bank of the river from Biasca to Acquarossa (just south of Torre on the map) in around 4 hours time. Taking the road over the pass from Olivone is said to be the most scenic way out of the Ticino.

Bellinzona is overlooked by most tourist in favor of the glitzier Lake cities to the south and west. But the hills of Bellinzona offer three castles, and the city dominates a central, often fought-for valley. The old town is nice; Bellinzona is worth a relaxing day.

Locarno is the principle Swiss resort on Lago Maggiore. The cobbled streets of the old town are full of day trippers on weekends, but quieter during the week.

Lugano is probably the most bustling of Swiss lakeside resorts.
