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.
