Spring in Ticino

A new awakening

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. This season is particularly colourful, the dynamic, bright pink with shades of red, reminiscent of camellias being the dominant feature. A thousand nuances make up one vibrant colour: Ticino Camellia Pink makes spring holidays more glamorous.

Unmissable spring events

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.
