Locarno ©
Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Step off the beaten path and head to Falconeria Locarno and Lido Locarno. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Piazza Grande, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso, take in the spiritual surroundings of Chiesa di San Michele, and get outside with Cimetta.

To see reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read our Locarno trip builder.

New Delhi, India to Locarno is an approximately 14-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Locarno. Expect much colder weather when traveling from New Delhi in January: highs in Locarno hover around °C, while lows dip to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Thu) so you can drive to Stresa.
