All the energy of the lake

Lake Maggiore is a paradise for those who love water sports, from swimming to rowing, from sailing to motor-boating. Its lidos are well-equipped places to discover the beauty of lying in the sun after a rejuvenating swim, but also to have fun and meet and chat with cosmopolitan folk.

In search of truth

If you love being in nature, trekking or meditating, get ready to explore hundreds of kilometres of trails by foot or mountain bike. One of the most famous communities was born in these woods on Ascona's Monte Verità, seeking a new relationship between Man and Nature in the early 20th century.

The pleasure of beautiful and good things

Ticino and Lake Maggiore are a magical place for those in search of traditions and authentic produce. Quality restaurants range from traditional to innovative, and toasts are made with local Merlot. From Locarno to Ascona, craft stores and boutiques form a unique path where beauty is the goal.
