Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso and Chiesa di San Michele. Discover out-of-the-way places like Falconeria Locarno and Lido Locarno. Step out of Locarno with an excursion to Cardada in Orselina--about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with Cimetta, don't miss a visit to Lungolago Di Ascona, play a few rounds at Sake Golf, and view the masterpieces at OnArte.

To see traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read Locarno vacation planner.

Stresa is a town and comune of about 5,000 residents on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, about 90km northwest of Milan. Get in touch with nature at Isole Borromee and Pista Ciclo-Pedonale Cittiglio - Laveno Mombello. Discover out-of-the-way places like Parco della Rocca Borromea and Villa Ducale. Change things up with these side-trips from Stresa: Collegiata di San Vittore (in Brezzo di Bedero), Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Rocca Borromeo (in Angera). There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, identify plant and animal life at Riserva Naturale Speciale del Sacro Monte della SS. Trinita, pause for some serene contemplation at Sacro Monte di Ghiffa, and kick back and relax at Spiaggia di Cerro.
