A few months back we were invited to Switzerland by the Swiss Tourism Board @MySwitzerland. They asked us to pick two regions we wanted to visit. After some research, we decided that Ticino, Switzerland (The Italian speaking part) would be our first stop!Here are the Top 5 Places to visit in Ticino, Switzerland.
We spent four days exploring Ticino, and it’s beautiful lakes and mountains. We started off in the beautiful town of Lake Lugano. It’s like Lake Como’s prettier cousin. Then the next day- we headed to Lake Locarno, which was also a beautiful lake, and cool little town. We took the bus from Locarno up the mountain all the way to a small town called Sogno. We enjoyed the mountain view, and a couple bowls of pasta. Then from there- we took the bus back down to Valle Verzasca. This was my favorite part of Ticino by far! Valle Verzasca is a fresh water Alpine river that runs between the mountains. It is a popular spot for people to come and relax, and swim. Highly recommended if you visit Ticino!
Then- on our final days we explored the capital of Ticino- a town called Bellinzona which is famous for it’s beautiful castles that surround, and overlook the city.
