Locarno ©
Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
On the 6th (Sat), meet the residents at Falconeria Locarno, make a splash at Lido Locarno, and then don't miss a visit to Lungolago Di Ascona. On the 7th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa dei Santi Pietro e Paolo, thentake your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cardada, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso.

To find maps, more things to do, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Locarno trip itinerary builder site.

Mumbai, India to Locarno is an approximately 15-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from Mumbai to Locarno. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Mumbai in April: high temperatures in Locarno hover around °C and lows are around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to drive to Stresa.
