  • As you can see in blue, Ticino is the southernmost region of Switzerland and borders with Italy. We are within easy reach by all means of transport. In fact, the Lugano domestic airport allows to reach all regions in a short time, while Milan international airport is at just 50 minute drive from the Swiss border and 2 major shuttle bus companies offer transfer at a convinient fare. By the way it’s a stunning 30 min. flight over the Alps. On a beautiful day you can see everything.
  • How to get to TI? Other than by plane/car, there are 4 scenic routes. New Wilhelm Tell Express
  • Why come to Ti? What’s so special? We maneged to keep the same safety, reliability, cleaness and quality for what CH is so famous, but we rose ip a bit the temperature, and ordered some extra sunlight and get rid of most of the clouds that we don’t need. We also slow down a bit more to be more mediterranean. We have a saying that the good wine is to be found into small barriels. TI fits 50 times into the state of NY, and has so much. From palm trees to glaciers up the mountains, you can change from 80°-40° within an hour, form 600-6500 ft, not only by walking but also by cable cars and this can be done in a short time. You can be in the Maggia Valley, and feel in a wide green and lush place and 1 h later you can be downtown Ascona at the lake lunch sipping a mohito!
  • Many swiss trails goes through TI Ticino has 2000 miles of hiking paths, it is like walking a couple of times through Kansas, but a bit more interesting.
  • I don’t know if any of you has seen the 14th episode of Amazing Race on CBS, the last 15th of February, they showed how a team member had to jump off the dam, that’s the one you can see in the picture. It’s the highest bungy jumping place in the world and where James Bond movie Golden Eye was filmed. (220 metres of hight, 180 metres of jump and 7.5 seconds).
  • Lido Locarno Wilhelm Tell Express
  • Something not to be missed are our 2 Unesco World Heritage sites. Since the year 2000 the 3 beautiful Medioeval Castles of Bellinzona, in all of the 3 castles there is a museum and in the 1st and in the 3rd a restaurant. The 2 nd site since 2003 is Mount San Giorgio, which is UNESCO heritage for its geological and fossil treasures.

  • Great deals There is great shopping possibilities at FoxTown, the biggest Outlet Store in southern Europe with more than 140 well known brands, which was rated by Forbes one of the best shopping Malls in the world. Lugano and Locarno also offer great shopping. Via Nassa in Lugano is Ticino’s fanciest and most renowned shopping street.
  • Last but not least, our events, where people crowd together and look at the stars. We have the biggest open air season of Switzerland. Most of our events take place in the natural setting of our cities, as the International Locarno Filmfestival, or the Moon&Star concerts in July which features stars as Deep Purple, Tracy Chapman, Pink, Alicia Keys, etc. Other events take place by the lake side as the New Orleans Jazz Festival in Ascona. These settings give to our events a familiar feeling and a uniqueness that you will only find here in Ticino and nowhere else. Many events, not only during summer. Tonight the ice skating rink of Locarno’s inauguration, it will stay there till January,
