The Mountainous Jewel of Switzerland

The stunning, Italian-speaking region of Switzerland, Ticino is a real Alpine jewel with crystal water lakes, snow-covered mountain tops and lush greenery. With vibrant cities and a wide choice of activities, this is truly a region worth a visit.

Ticino is divided into 2 parts by the Monte Ceneri pass: the more mountainous, northern part, called Sopraceneri, and the southern Sotticeneri, concentrated around Lake Lugano. Both share a milder climate than the rest of the country, with higher temperatures and more sunshine hours.

All that and more can be enjoyed in the region's picturesque cities and towns: charming Ascona (also known as the Swiss Riviera), stunning Lugano with its great waterfront full of palm trees, boulevards and beaches, or scenic Locarno with a promenade along Lake Maggiore and a world-famous film festival.

Ticino has ideal conditions for a variety of outdoor activities, starting from hiking, cycling and mountain biking to swimming and boating. After a day outside you might choose to relax in one of the many cosy cafés and bars and enjoy a cup of delicious coffee or a glass of wine.

Whether you’re looking for wellness or just cheap hotels in Ticino, Booking.com offers a variety of over 530 accommodation types to choose from, from trendy hotels, to cosy apartments and friendly holiday homes.
