Bellinzona

Coming from the northern part of Switzerland, your first stop should be Bellinzona. It is known for its famous castles - Castlengrande, Montebello and Castello di Sasso Corbaro. Go for it!

Lugano

Then there is Lugano. Yes, it is a famous city in Ticino but definitely worth it. We really like the vibe of it (Switzerland with palm trees!), especially in the summer months where the city hosts many music festivals. One of our favourites? The LongLife festival which lasts whole July. Go for it!

Monte Bre

Monte Bre with its height of 915 m represents in our eyes one of the best viewpoints in Switzerland. There are two ways to reach this fantastic mountain peak. You can take the funicular (adults 16.00 chf single ride, 25.00 chf return) or hike to the top of the mountain, starting at Gandria (easy to medium difficulty, less than 2 hours).

Village Bre

Village Bre is a picturesque and romantic town which is perfectly located on the hiking trail from Gandria to the top of the mountain. Have a stop here and take some nice photos! The view is gorgeous!

Monte San Salvatore

Another great viewpoint in Ticino is at the lovely Monte San Salvatore. There is a funicular from the village called Paradiso to the top of the hill - it leaves every 30 minutes. You can also go for a hike - up and down it will take you about 2 hours.

Locarno

Another city you should consider visiting while in the region of Ticino is Locarno. It is beautifully situated at the Lago Maggiore and you know what it has over 2300 hours per year! So if you're looking for nice weather, when in Switzerland, head to Locarno :)

Cardada - Cimetta

When in Locarno, make sure to take the cable car and reach the height of 1671 m. There is a spectacular viewpoint you should go for. After that take the lift to the Cimetta mountain. Check the operational hours here. Enjoy the views of the stunning Lago Maggiore, walk around, have a coffee at one of the restaurants' terrace. Then we suggest to walk all the way down to the Cardada cable car station. It's quite short - about 30 minutes.

Morcote

Morcote is known as one of the prettiest towns in Ticino! It's located South of Lugano and is worth the trip due to its beautiful location between the lake and the mountains! It comes with a romantic touch with the church, the chapels, old houses, narrow streets, lots of boats...

Tenero-Contra

Honestly, we stumbled upon this village by accident. We came to Tenero-Contra by bus from Locarno and continued on foot from here to the Verzasca dam. The surroundings were incredibly stunning - mountains, vineyards, palm trees, rivers... make sure to at least take a picture of this place!

Verzasca Dam

Wanna go bungee jumping? You can do so at the Verzasca Dam. It is a dive of 220 metres, apparently THE bungee jump out there. And James Bond did it. Cool, right? But it really looks scary though :) We stopped there and watched the jumpers for a while...

Verzasca River

Our favourite place in Ticino is definitely the Verzasca River! The colour of the water is soooo beautifully greenish, we simply love it! In summer you can plunge into it but don't expect too much of a warm water :) Additionally, make sure to drive to the picturesque bridge Ponte dei Salti - and jump from it!

Brissago Islands

Between Locarno and the city of Brissago, there are the scenic Brissago islands - two small islands, worth your visit. The bigger one, called San Pancrazio owns a lovely botanical garden. You can visit those island by boat.

Where to Stay in Ticino

Gandria - Lugano

Here comes a hotel suggestion if you're looking for something cheap, want to visit Lugano, climb the Monte Bre and have a view over the Lugano Lake > then book your stay at Le Bucce die Gandria. This stay is so simple but cute so we already stayed here twice! :)

Another wonderful place to stay, which blew our minds, is the Park Hotel Brenscino in Brissago. What's special? Each hotel room has a balcony with spectacular views over the Lake Maggiore and its surrounding hills. In addition to a heated pool, there is a funky decorated restaurant, a botanical garden with hammocks, a mini-golf course and a viewpoint terrace with a pink bench, as you see below.

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Merit Glitters (Friday, 05 January 2024 21:46)

    Do not invest in any trading platform, there is nothing such as get rich quick, it doesn't always end well. I was also a victim to this kind of scam. An Asian girl introduced me to ibitminers and i got really deep into their shit and all i can say is these scammers are good at what they do. I was allowed to withdraw a little amount which i believed was to build my trust but they sucked me dry and i never got my capital after all was said and done. I lost a ton of asset and when i reported to local authorities i was told since crypto is untraceable, there is nothing they can do about it. I couldn't get any help from them until i contracted the service of a professional ethical hacker. He hacked into the eth wallet address i made payment to and retrieved my stolen crypto and he showed me the transaction history of these scammers, I was in shock.

    A revolution in banking has been brought about by the digital era, with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin taking center stage. But there are also risks associated with this emerging field, the most frightening of which being the possibility of losing digital assets. This is when Osecybersailing and it's team steps in like a shining knight, equipped with the formidable weapon of Bitcoin recovery. My valuable Bitcoin was stolen via a technical error, leaving me hopeless. My dreams were almost dashed by the cold reality of irreversible blockchain transactions. However, there was a ray of hope that emerged from the shadows when I came across Osecybersailing and it's team. Equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and years of experience, their team of professionals painstakingly navigated the blockchain maze, following even the smallest digital traces of my misplaced funds. The fact that my Bitcoin appeared, safe and sound, back in my wallet in a very short amount of time was a credit to their commitment and competence. It restored my faith in the security and reliability of the crypto ecosystem. But my testimony is more than just a celebration of Osecybersailing technical abilities. It also serves as a rallying cry for ethical cryptocurrency stewardship.
    If you find yourself lost in the depths of lost Bitcoin, facebook Account and Whatsapp hacking to check if your partner is cheating, then let Osecybersailing and it's team guide you towards the light of redemption.
