A place where I could live

As a huge fan of Italy, I was very intrigued by this Italian region of Switzerland, and the Ticino does not disappoint. I have come to think of it as Italy-lite, with all of the things I love about Italy (the warmth, enthusiasm, rich language, love of life and food...) and none of the inconveniences (train strikes, unexpected closures, laundry hanging out of windows).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Beautiful Scenery, enthisastic people, Italian food
  • In a nutshell:All of the good things of Italy and none of the inconveniences

    This is one part of Switzerland that we have never been to. It looks great. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Thanks for the info on the Centovalli line. I am seriously considering this on my next trip to Switz. The bike ride sounds fun too!

    Ha! I went to Italy before Weight Watchers...but it looks like this place is easily do-able :-D and we NEED to hit the lakes on our next trip, too. Great suggestions!
