Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Chiesa di San Michele and Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso will appeal to history buffs. Step out of Locarno with an excursion to Cardada in Orselina--about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Falconeria Locarno, don't miss a visit to Lungolago Di Ascona, see human ingenuity at work at Verzasca Dam, and cool off at Lido Locarno.

To find traveler tips, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, use the Locarno trip itinerary builder app.
