"Welcome to Ascona" Ascona by yumyum

Ascona Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 55 photos

Over the years I have been several times to Ascona for a few hours. On our day trip to Locarno from Zurich, we also headed to Ascona for an ice cream.

Ascona is a popular holiday destination for the rich and not so well off people. There are usually also a lot of day trippers, so you will encounter a very mixed bunch of people here.

Ascona is close to Locarno on the Lago Maggiore and you needn't go far to reach Italy.

    Lovely. We may have passed thru on our whirlwind trip across Switzerland...then dropping down into Italy for a bit. Lake district is stunning.

    Oh I want ice cream now.... this one looks so delicious :-)) And while I am eating ice cream, I could tour around the lake by boat :-)

    The ice cream at Seven Easy looks yummy! And if I visited Ascona now and then I would also go there every time.

    I think this monument with the footprints of the football players look great - what an awesome idea!
