Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Change things up with a short trip to Cardada in Orselina (about 36 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Falconeria Locarno, head outdoors with Indepth Outthere Adventures, admire the engineering at Verzasca Dam, and see the interesting displays at Pinacoteca Casa Rusca.

To see reviews, ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Locarno trip itinerary planning app.

Ahmedabad, India to Locarno is an approximately 19.5- hour combination of flight and car.
