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 Chiesa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Cimetta and Cardada. There's lots more to do: make a trip to Chiesa di San Francesco, gain insight at Centro Dannemann - Fabbrica Tabacchi, play a few rounds at Sake Golf, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta.
