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

  • I was here in the summer of 2016, attended the Lana Del Rey concert on the Moon and Stars festival. It was beyond amazing. Lovely place to visit, to see , to feel. The mountains , the lake, the buildings, the air , it's a real Italian/Swiss gem .
  • This place is at this time just amazing! Lovely xmas market with nice booth for food and drinks, in the middle of it you can try to iceskate! :) recommended with kids!
  • Lovely place to visit, there are many restaurants and bars to sit down, drink and eat something while enjoying a sunny day. During the winter is possible to ice skating and during the summer there are many events such as Moon&Stars and the Locarno Festival.
  • Visit during a festival for the fan fair. Good restaurants around.
  • There is a lot of antique goods loaded in this open market, prices are negotiable and perhaps you may find your treasure here. Nearby there is a Casino, might be this was where the source of those precious items came from.

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.
