Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Chiesa di San Michele and Lido Locarno. Get some cultural insight at Sacromonte e Santuario Madonna del Sasso and Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta. Go for a jaunt from Locarno to Orselina to see Cardada about 36 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: see human ingenuity at work at Verzasca Dam, head outdoors with Cimetta, don't miss a visit to Piazza Grande, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Falconeria Locarno.
