Autumn in Ticino

For all those who need an extra boost of autumn

Autumn, the late summer 

In Ticino, summer always lasts a little longer. The sun shines, the cool breeze blows through your hair, nature begins to change its colours and chestnut husks populate the woods. It feels good outside. 

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 do outdoor sports only in summer? With a climb here and a MTB descent there, Ticino is packed with exciting outdoor activities. 

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, it looks like rain. The ideal day to admire works of art in the various regions of Ticino. Or in the Mendrisiotto to follow the audio guide of its 5 art museums

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.
