Locarno

By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

Our Editorial team's advice

Situated on the banks of Lake Majeur, Locarno is an archetypal holiday resort, with its palms, terraces, luxury boutiques and elegant palaces. The film festival, held in the first half of August, gives it a "Cannes"-like look, while during the rest of the year, it looks like Venice or Tuscany. Treat yourself to a stroll around the streets that surround the Piazza Grande and along the lake. In town, pay a visit to Visconti castle, the paintings gallery and the San Francesco church,, as well as to other sites in the area: the Madonna del Sasso of Orselina, Brissago islands and Ascona.
