  • Lake Maggiore has a nice view but if I had to choose, I would choose the Lugano Lake or Lake Como for a holiday

  • The Lake is located with its northernmost part of Switzerland. But the largest part is located in Italy. Because it is a alpsjö is the deep but surprising however, poolside bar. The mighty mountains that stand at attention around the Lake provides plenty of dramatic views. Both up from the mountains and up from the Lake. I have not yet gone all around the Lake, but large parts, and think it is great everywhere. If you compare it with, for example, Lake Garda, in a much flatter landscape, so this fits me much better. Here, I would be able to stay long. Have just found a new gem high above the Maccagno, where I hope to come back.

  • Stresa: beautiful garden city. A kilométrico Boardwalk, and beautiful. May and June are special in Italy: white night (museums open till midnight and free); Giro D Italia; old car racing etc. The timing is perfect: heat during the day and chilly at night, the scenery of the Lake is immersible over how one must not miss visiting the Isola. Worth every penny!!! We're doing the Italian and Swiss lakes: and the journey is being better than we imagined!

Where to stay in Locarno

Overlooking the waterfront of Lake Maggiore, picturesque Locarno has plenty to offer in terms of accommodations. A collection of charming, mid-market, family-run guesthouses and bed and breakfasts dot the shoreline, where you can enjoy a cozy stay in this vacation spot. On the east side of the cape stretches a long promenade, while the west side features a beach and public pool; immediate access to these depends on the position of your lodging. A little further inland you'll find a couple of hostels, a good option for budget-minded travelers willing to compromise on view.
