Dominated by the Madonna del Sasso church, which is reached by funicular from the town centre, Locarno has a lovely lakeside promenade, where colourful flora flourishes in the warm climate, and a medieval old town full of little shops and cafés. Our hotels in Locarno offer you a great choice of accommodation. The impressive ‘Piazza Grande’ is famous for its frequent concerts and other events. Visit the unspoilt nature of the valley of Verzasca or head into the hills by cable-car to enjoy the cool air and super panoramic views, or take a boat ride on the lake to Italy.
