    We are with the cable car to cardada. From there we hiked uphill one hour up to Cimetta. From here you have a beautiful view over Locarno and Lago Maggiore. The viewpoint on cardada, you cannot compare with that of Cimetta. Certainly Cimetta do. You can also possibly with the cable car from Cardada to Cimetta. We also have the full descent on foot done from Cimetta to Orselina (+-2uur30minuten).

    We left towards Locarno. There we took the funicular to Orselina, then immediately upon exiting the right side is the cable car to Cardada and arrived there, after few meters following signs, the chairlift to Cimetta. An amazing experience and great. Incredible landscape. From Cimetta to Cardada you can descend on foot, because the trail is easy and time. But from Cardada in Orselina I recommend you pick up the cable car and funicular. We got off on foot and it is not true that it takes 3 hours and the path is not as easy as they say on the website. Not really suitable for families. While in Cardada is a large space for children to play and there are also several places to eat.

    Funicular from Locarno, (near the train Station), cable car to Cardada, a three hundred metre walk and a chair lift to Cimetta. The views from the top looking out over Lago Maggiore are breathtaking. ...  more »

  • Great pizza, fresh salad, friendly service. A fun destination for hikers and bikers!
  • Expensive drinks and food. The drinks were not cold and the kitchen was incredibly slow to cook the food. I can recommend maybe getting a quick ice cream, but nothing more. Go back into the valley for quality food.
  • Great especially after a rainy day

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.
