Exploring beautiful footpaths through the mountains or vineyards, taking part in the grape harvest for a day or tasting wines in one of Canton Ticino’s renowned wineries after an enjoyable bike ride will make your visit to the area truly unforgettable. Those wanting to discover the canton’s autumn landscape on foot can also try some of the walks through the chestnut woods. On top, there are plenty of local food festivals featuring a variety of regional products. In short, there’s something for everyone.
