Ticino is famous for its mild and Mediterranean climate, perfect for a relaxing summer holiday with sunshine and blue skies. You can really feel the Italian influence as you wander the narrow lanes and alleyways leading to the piazzas and churches of the many picturesque villages.
Bellinzona, Ticino’s capital city, has a beautiful medieval town centre surrounded by three castles, whilst Ascona and Locarno located on the shores of Lago Maggiore, are notably more Italian in style. Lugano is the ‘business centre’ of the region and situated on the shores of Lake Lugano with easy access to Milan and a multitude of local excursions and experiences.
