The AlpTransit project not only brings the cities of Ticino closer to the rest of Switzerland, it also brings them closer to each other. Thanks to the Ceneri Base Tunnel, which is due to open in under a year, journey times in the Bellinzona-Locarno-Lugano triangle will be cut by almost half.
A dream of a mobility that is getting closer: a breakfast of cappuccino and pastries in Locarno’s Piazza Grande before jumping on a train to Lugano just in time for the museums to open. Or dinner in Piazza della Riforma in Lugano before enjoying an evening screening at the Locarno Film Festival in Piazza Grande. A world of opportunities will open up thanks to the Ceneri Base Tunnel and the strengthening of the Locarno railway line, which will bring trains and their passengers from Locarno to Lugano in just 30 minutes. This means that while staying in the sunny region of Lake Maggiore, opportunities to discover Ticino’s traditions in its other cities will be within easier reach.
