Known as a camping paradise, Tenero is located on the north shore of Lake Maggiore, at the entrance of the Verzasca valley.

Tenero is a delightful and friendly little town on the shores of Lake Maggiore, with its own unique charm – characterized by the smooth, calm surface of the lake surrounded by mountains, white sandy beaches and the surrounding hillsides lush with high-quality grapevines. Visitors to the area are immediately whisked away from reality, cocooned in a carefree and relaxing environment.

Right on the lake’s shores, Tenero boasts well-known camp sites where tourists can enjoy a broad range of facilities and services of all types. In Tenero you can find the National Youth Centre, a true sportsman’s paradise, and a prestigious cultural and architectural heritage (such as the Fraccia oratory and the Matasci Gallery).
