    Interesting tips and fine photos! Like Holger, I have only gone through Bellinzona on the train a few times, but never got off to have a look.

    Michael, brilliant photos of Bellinzona here. I only passed through the city a few times by train, but it seems to be definitely well worth a visit.

    Coming back with you from exotic Seychelles to old and kind Europe! Very fine place with wonderful Art Nouveau facades and palaces!

    Absolutely brilliant pictures of one of my favourite towns which is often overlooked by tourists. Too bad you missed Castello di Montebello; it is very interesting. And the views! Ahhh!

    An impressive example for the big variety found on such a small territory as Switzerland is.

    I really should revisit this gem one day! I've only been there as a kid and don't remember much. It looks so beautiful and I bet the food is nice too.
