Ascona and Locarno

Two gems by Lago Maggiore

The Ferrovia Vigezzina will take you in comfort to the picturesque towns by Lago Maggiore. . It's worth stopping for. Visit the chimney sweep museum, the perfume shop and the Praudina adventure park in Santa Maria Maggiore, the pilgrimage church in Re or the museum with the highest bell tower in Ticino in Intragna. Locarno draws in visitors with its large cinema on the Piazza Grande, with music and architecture, but also with hidden alleys, the Portici (arcades), and the Castello Visconteo with the Rivellino. You can also take the bus to Ascona, which features Mediterranean flair, a picturesque Old Town and cinematic lakeside promenade.
