Autumn in Ticino

For all those who need an extra boost of autumn

Autumn doesn't end in November

The good weather lasts until winter in Ticino. The sun shines, the cool breeze ruffles your hair and spiky chestnuts populate the woods. It’s still comfortable outdoors, the warm season isn’t over yet! 

Chestnuts are certainly the star of this season. You can find them everywhere: in the woods, at restaurants, at the market. Roasted, with milk, candied, in vermicelles… it is a traditional product that both adults and children will enjoy.

Who said you can’t do outdoor sports in November? With a climb here and a MTB descent there, Ticino is packed with exciting outdoor activities. 

Stone Footpaths

Book your basket of local products from Val Magìa in Cevio and take it with you along the Stone Footpath.



Visit places packed with history, see magnificent raptors, experience an adventure and test your ingenuity by solving mysteries.

A hot bath is truly wonderful on the coldest days. With a lake or mountain view? Even better! Children can enjoy it too thanks to pools and fun slides.

The sky is overcast and rain is coming. This is the perfect day to spend learning something new or admiring works of art. 

A bit of shopping is essential. With over 100 shops and well-known brands, Fox Town is the ideal place for an afternoon of shopping.

You can still visit a grotto in November! Here’s a selection of eateries that are still open in the autumn, serving local delicacies such as polenta, braised meat, soups, cakes and, above all, mouthwatering game. Whether you decide to sit indoors or outdoors, your belly will always be full. 

In Ticino, you can camp in November as well! Wheter in a campervan or in a tent, the renowned quality of Ticino's campsites is at your service. Located on lake shores or in lush valleys, in some wonderful settings.
