Switzerland - Ticino (Chapter)
This is the Ticino chapter from Lonely Planet’s Switzerland guidebook.
Italian weather. Italian style. Ticino is the Switzerland that Heidi never mentioned. Sip a full-bodied merlot at a pavement cafe, enjoy a hearty lunch at a chestnut-shaded grotto or float in the mirror-like lakes of Lugano and Locarno.
- roam the trio of medieval castles in Bellinzona for spirit-soaring views of the Old Town and the Alps
- be spellbound by lake and mountain views from Monte Brè and Monte San Salvatore above Lugano
- indulge in Alpine cheese, merlot wines and gorgeous scenery in Mendrisio
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Bellinzona, Lugano, Lago Di Lugano, Gandria, Campione D’Italia, Monte Generoso, Ceresio Peninsula, Mendrisio & around, Meride, Lago Maggiore, Locarno, Ascona, Centovalli, Valle Maggia and Val Verzasca.
