Locarno Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Locarno enjoys a privileged climate, set in a sunny bay of Lake Maggiore whose bend narrows as it approaches the delta formed by the River Maggia. From March onwards, there are flowering hydrangeas, camellias or magnolias. Its gardens, lakeside, slopes dotted with vineyards or Orselina villas and Cardada heights make this fine city a pleasant place to stroll in.
