Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Kick off your visit on the 2nd (Thu): tee off at Sake Golf, admire the engineering at Verzasca Dam, and then take in the awesome beauty at Cardada. Keep things going the next day: cool off at Lido Locarno, thenget to know the resident critters at Falconeria Locarno, and then don't miss a visit to Lungolago Di Ascona.

To plan Locarno vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Toronto, Canada to Locarno is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and car. Traveling from Toronto to Locarno, you'll lose 6 hours due to the time zone difference.

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. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Spiaggia di Cerro and Guree Beach. Get in touch with nature at Isola Bella and Lago Maggiore. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Stresa: Chiesa di Santa Veronica (in Calde) and Distilleria Rossi d’Angera (in Angera). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Palazzo Borromeo, admire the striking features of Borromeo Palace, unwind over a drink at La Cambusa, and head off the coast to Isole Borromee.

Plan my Stresa trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Getting from Locarno to Stresa by car takes about an hour. Other options: take a bus; or take a train. In May, daily temperatures in Stresa can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
