    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.

  • 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.
  • A nice-looking plaza with restaurants (hard to say anything beyond that).
  • Large open square that is the place to be during the film festival and an average tourist trap during the rest of the year.
  • Una piazza increddibile! Evventi internazionali come il Festival del Film, Moon and Stars è diversi altri durante tutto l'anno What a famous public place! There are not only the well known international events like Moon and Stars festival or the Film Festival in July / August.... no in winter is a Ice-field and many other happenibgs during all Year Bravo Locarno !
  • We visited on a Monday - it was very very quiet

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.
