  • Piazza Grande cute but not exciting. Much better Italian villages that look always on Lake Maggiore. Locarno is not recommended.

  • After a few vintage piazza Grande and largo Zorzi found in life. Great way to make a living "outside the concert" the Ferris wheel the Food Truck, great global organization, really good to repeat.

  • Piazza Grande...the most historical and fashionable place in Locarno..go there, enjoy a coffee in one of the multitude of bars, and breathe the fresh air from the closest beautiful valley
  • Had a wonderful night at the Moon and Stars concert of Jamiroquai. Beautiful place and very welcoming.
  • Interesting place for a weekend. But almost all shops are closed on Sundays so it's not really a place for shopping. The square is also quite small so I would recommend visiting other nearby towns such as Ascona on the same day.
  • Fast service, Nice ambience good quality/price.
  • Beautiful place, and the world famous location during the Film festival in Locarno...

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.
