Brissago & Ronco s/Ascona

Visit Brissago and reach its islands located in the middle of Lake Maggiore in only a few minutes. Come and discover an impressive small botanical jewel.

The region benefits from a mild subtropical climate with varied vegetation where camellias and mimosas grow side by side with oaks, chestnuts and gentians. The mountain culminates in the Ghiridone, 2200 metres high. Lake and hills offer wonderful possibilities: sailing, windsurfing, swimming, tennis, boat trips, walks and many mountain hikes as well. A village with a clear tourist call, it also has a local industry in the shape of the Tobacco Factory which is world-famous for its cigars.

A harmonious combination of lake and mountains, Brissago brings together north and south in a perfect play of light and colour.
