Plan your romantic weekend on the shores of Lake Maggiore and treat yourself to a dream getaway amid lakes and mountains, surrounded by nature and romantic villages. Ascona-Locarno, a region where you can fall in love over and over again.
The lake, mountains, valleys and villages: the Ascona-Locarno region has everything you can think of when it comes to a favourite romantic weekend destination in Ticino. Here, you can take time to be with your better half and enjoy the warm embrace of small but perfectly formed little towns, strolling hand in hand and chatting over a candlelit supper.
Ascona-Locarno, home of the dolce vita in Ticino, is perfect for a romantic getaway. Strolling arm in arm along the lakeshore, exploring nature together, chatting for hours on a bench with a magnificent view: Here you can do all the things you never find the time for at home and create unforgettable moments. Like enjoying a nice candlelight dinner in the cosy ambience of the holiday home. Surprise your partner with a gourmet dinner (here you can find a list with restaurants offering take-away or home delivery service). Would you like a little more romance? Take a walk with your sweetheart in Locarno's Camellia Park, amidst thousands of blooming (or about to bloom) plants. It's a bath of colour and energy that can only be found in the Lake Maggiore region. Even if the shops and restaurants are temporary closed, at the end of the day, it's not important to have spent the time on fancy activities, what's important is being together.
It’s not difficult to find complicity and serenity when you feel in tune with nature. The wind ruffling your hair, the scents of the forest, the rocks warmed by the sun. Alone, together, standing before the immensity of nature makes you feel small, but incredibly united.
Whether you are an active couple or prefer quiet activities, this is the year to recharge your batteries in nature and fill your vitamin D store. The Ascona-Locarno region is situated on a lake surrounded by mountains with breathtaking peaks, 1400 km of hiking trails and two official mountain bike routs to explore together and numerous extreme sports to test your courage.
