Known as the ‘Pearl of Lake Maggiore’, this quaint lakeside town is situated in a sunny bay near the delta of the Maggia River and has a special charm. The lakeside promenade enjoys a wonderful panorama of Lake Maggiore and towards the Brissago islands and the old town with its cobbled streets and bell tower is home to a variety of little boutiques to explore. The regular bus and boat services bring visitors with ease to Locarno or other destinations on both the Swiss and Italian side of the lake, and there are plenty of walking opportunities from strolls along the lakefront, or walks higher up into the Ticino valleys.
