The Vista bucket list
Your must-sees around Ascona and Lake Maggiore
City fun, part one: Lugano: easy to reach by train from Locarno train station. The lovely city beckons with art galore and cosy eateries for refreshments.
City fun, part two: a short trip to Milan. The cathedral, the Galleria shopping gallery, the art – need we go on?
Lake paradise: a trip to Lake Como. There’s a good reason why numerous stars have made Lake Como their retreat. The landscape is enchantingly beautiful.
Shopping: a trip to the “Foxtown” outlet centre in Mendrisio (approx. 40 minutes away by car). You can look forward to browsing around more than 160 shops here. Also open on Sundays.
Stroll: at the lakeside market from April to October (the location changes each day; every Tuesday in Ascona, near to Ascona on the other days – fantastic for a boat trip), you can discover Ticino specialities and regional products
Water fun: in the “Splash e Spa Tamaro” waterpark (approx. 30 minutes away by car). For a day full of fun in the water and on the slides (the water slides are truly spectacular).
Wellness indulgence: in the Thermalbad Spa in Locarno
