Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Step out of Locarno with an excursion to Cardada in Orselina--about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Falconeria Locarno, head outdoors with Cimetta, cool off at Lido Locarno, and admire the engineering at Verzasca Dam.

To see where to stay, reviews, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Locarno road trip planning site.

Lexington, USA to Locarno is an approximately 22-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Lexington to Locarno due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Lexington in September: highs in Locarno hover around 73°F, while lows dip to 56°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Thu) to allow time 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 out of town with these interesting Stresa side-trips: Lago Maggiore (in Verbania), Rocca Borromeo (in Angera) and Orrido di sant'anna (in Cannobio). There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, browse for treasures at Epoque Antichita e Restauro, get to know the resident critters at Park Pallavicino, and appreciate the history behind Statue of San Carlone.

To find ratings, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Stresa road trip site.

Drive from Locarno to Stresa in an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or take a train. Expect a daytime high around 75°F in September, and nighttime lows around 55°F. You will have some time to spend on the 28th (Thu) before leaving for home.
