Famous for its climate, the mildest in Switzerland, with around 2,300 hours of sunshine per year, and for its International Film Festival, which takes place in August, Locarno is a small town which has spread over the wide delta of the river Maggia.
The sunny banks of Lake Maggiore, the Mediterranean flora in its parks, the entirely Italian charm of the centre, and the various opportunities for relaxation, as well as a wide range of hotels are all an invitation to stay. Locarno is dominated by the Sanctuary of Madonna del Sasso and lies at the foot of majestic green valleys which lead up to the glaciers; it has been an important tourist destination for over a century.
Locarno is a starting point for many excursions up the valleys or around the lake, and it is also a beach resort, particularly animated during the summer with music in the squares, cultural events and a lively nightlife. Thanks to the favourable climate, spring comes early.
