Win a stay in Ticino

Mid Morning Mix// The Breakfast Show // Gardening & Green Spaces// Explore Switzerland// Food & Drink// WRS// Travel // May 2, 2019


Here in Ticino, quality and efficiency are Swiss, whereas the flair and the lifestyle is Italian.

Be seduced by the breathtaking scenery, the colours and the flavours of the "Dolce Vita" that make this land unique and unforgettable.

Ticino Tourism Win a stay in Ticino

Ticino is an immense world enclosed in a small region rich of contrasts: palm trees and glaciers, lakes and mountains, gourmet restaurants and traditional grottos, trends and traditions. 

The emerald green river which runs in the Verzasca valley is very tempting and especially appreciated in summer for its refreshing powers. 



A wide variety of landscapes can be observed: gleaming glaciers, untamed Alpine valleys, green hills with rich subtropical vegetation and enchanting botanical parks. The climate is mild throughout the year.

The fine gastronomy is a way of life and the region is the perfect spot to enjoy local experiences.

The region features popular destinations such as Lugano, Ascona-Locarno, Bellinzona and Mendrisio, but also unspoilt valleys with high peaks.
