Summer holidays Locarno
Location: Locarno, Ticino
Famous for its climate, the mildest in Switzerland, with around 2,300 hours of sunshine per year, and for its International Film Festival, which takes place in August, Locarno is a small charming town which has spread over the wide delta of the river Maggia in the Italian part of Switzerland. The sunny banks of Lake Maggiore, the Mediterranean flora in its parks, the entirely Italian and the various opportunities for relaxation, as well as a wide range of hotels are all an invitation to stay.
The centre of the old town is the Piazza Grande, a large sun-drenched square with elegant shops and boutiques, pavement cafes and restaurants. Locarno is a starting point for many excursions up the valleys or around the lake, and it is also a beach resort, particularly animated during the summer with music in the squares, cultural events and a lively nightlife.
