  • Famous for the movie festival and the concerts in summertime and the ice installations in december, this place is a real nice spot! 
  • A nice big square where many concerci in the summer months the Centre of Locarno and from there you can reach via a funicular the madonna del sasso

  • This is the old major square in Locarno. We have seen many more that where nicer. Bit dissapointing. Some old buildings but no atmosphere here.

  • Locardo is a small lake side town. Despite variety of restaurants and hotels serving food, you might still need a recommended place to get some necessity even probably food stuff too, away from being too tourist! So smacked in the Locardo old town, this Swiss's Coop provides almost everything rivaling those at Lucern and Zurich for items I keep going back to get while in Switzerland. Having a neatly packed Coop at the Piazza Grande brings out the nostalgic local out of the tourist in you.
  • Nice grocery store
  • Since back with more retail space has improved a lot more articles d eat and also no food very friendly staff
