Licking homemade ice cream while taking a sunbathe in Ascona-Locarno. A visit to the Gelateria to try new delicious ice cream varieties is inevitable.
It may be a cliché but it's true! In warm weather, stroll leisurely in the sun along the lakeside promenade or across the Piazza Grande and savour an artisan ice cream. While you're in Ascona-Locarno, gelato is as much a part of the experience as the 2300 hours of sunshine per year.
