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.

  • Architecture is really interesting but it is not worth paying the fee to go in. The exposition inside its rather dated and does not offer anything special in terms of history or interesting facts about the construction.
  • It's a beautiful place for drug users and drinkers. I love it
  • Nice castle. The whole museum outdated. Staff not very friendly. Go there just to see the castle, which is interesting, but could do with some repair and maintenance.
  • went there thinking it was a huge castle. nothing but ruins where the town's drunk lot hang out.
  • Nice castle!
