Locarno ©
Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Visiting Cardada and Cimetta will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso and Chiesa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo. The adventure continues: get to know the resident critters at Falconeria Locarno, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Chiesa di San Michele, don't miss a visit to Piazza G. Motta, and see the interesting displays at Ghisla Art Collection.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Locarno trip planner.

Mumbai, India to Locarno is an approximately 15-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from Mumbai to Locarno. Expect much colder temperatures when traveling from Mumbai in May; daily highs in Locarno reach °C and lows reach °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) early enough to drive to Stresa.

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 Museo Internazionale Design Ceramico. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Isole Borromee and La Cambusa. Venture out of the city with trips to Lago Maggiore (in Verbania), Angera (Rocca Borromeo & Distilleria Rossi d’Angera) and Spiaggia di Cerro (in Laveno-Mombello). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Parco della Rocca Borromea, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa Vecchia dedicata a Santa Maria, admire the striking features of Borromeo Palace, and stroll through Isola Bella.

To find where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Stresa journey website.

Getting from Locarno to Stresa by car takes about an hour. Other options: take a bus; or take a train. In May, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
