Ticino is the only Swiss region located entirely on the southern side of the Alps; it is also the only canton whose official language is Italian. Situated on the main road and rail routes linking northern and southern Europe, Ticino is easy to reach by any means of transport.
The airport of Lugano-Agno is served by daily flights from Rome and Zurich, while the Swiss Federal Railways provide frequent connections to destinations throughout Switzerland and abroad.
Once you have arrived in Ticino, you can explore the whole territory easily thanks to the excellent public transport network and a variety of excursion facilities. If you require any further help, you will find tourist information offices throughout the canton – but you will also discover that in this warm and welcoming part of the country, people you meet out and about will be only too happy to give advice and assistance.
