With the mildest year-round cIimate of any of the cantons in Switzerland, Ticino in Spring-time always offers something special.
Enjoy an early taste of the coming Summer: as nature blooms before your eyes, prepare to be both relaxed and charmed by all its wonders. And don't forget that now, thanks to the Ceneri base tunnel, Ticino is even closer.
Public gardens and parks are lit with an infinite variety of colours thanks to the explosion of camellias, magnolias and azaleas.
The lakeside palms contrast proudly against the mountains’ still-snowy summits.
A stay in Ticino in the Spring is just what you need. Especially now that it only takes 30 minutes to cross it from Lugano to Locarno. Even the attractions of Bellinzona and Mendrisio, such as culture and flavours come closer, thanks to the Ceneri base tunnel.
Although some traditions will not take place conventionally this year, you can capture their essence here.
