Ascona Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Ascona, like neighbouring Locarno, is ideally placed for numerous sports activities at the mouth of the Maggia, on the shores of Lake Maggiore. This small fishing village has been favoured by artists for many years and is a popular resort because of its atmosphere and site, as well as the area's rich excursion opportunities.
