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). Next up on the itinerary: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Falconeria Locarno, get outside with Cimetta, examine the collection at Ghisla Art Collection, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Chiesa di San Michele.

To see more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Locarno trip planner.

Manila, Philippines to Locarno is an approximately 25-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 7 hours traveling from Manila to Locarno. Traveling from Manila in October, expect Locarno to be colder, temps between °C and °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Stresa.
