Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Visiting Cardada and Sake Golf will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso and Chiesa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo. There's lots more to do: get outside with Cimetta, make a trip to Piazza G. Motta, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa di San Michele, and see the interesting displays at Ghisla Art Collection.

Plan trip to Locarno with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Mumbai, India to Locarno is an approximately 15- hour combination of flight and car.

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 some cultural insight at Palazzo Borromeo and Il Centro Storico Laveno-Mombello. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Isole Borromee and La Cambusa. Venture out of the city with trips to Laveno-Mombello (Spiaggia di Cerro & Museo Internazionale Design Ceramico), Angera (Rocca Borromeo & Distilleria Rossi d’Angera) and Lago Maggiore (in Verbania). Next up on the itinerary: admire the landmark architecture of Borromeo Palace, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Park Pallavicino, head off the coast to Island of the Fishermen (Isola dei Pescatori), and steep yourself in history at Isola Bella.
