Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Step out of Locarno to go to Orselina and see Cardada, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: get to know the resident critters at Falconeria Locarno, pause for some serene contemplation at Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso, get outside with Cimetta, and walk around Parco delle Camelie.

For where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Locarno trip planner.

Salt Lake City, USA to Locarno is an approximately 20.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from Salt Lake City to Locarno.
