Locarno time travel tour




Is it possible to travel through time? We think so! Proof of this is the two-hour tour through the streets of Locarno, offered free of charge by Ascona-Locarno Tourism. Different eras, unknown events from the past, historical personalities, curiosities and an exclusive insight into places normally closed to the public - the perfect mix to set our time machine in motion. But always pay attention to what's happening around you, because with the Locarno Time Travel Tour anything is possible, and it only takes a brief moment to switch from the guide's tales of 2024 to a bygone era, complete with colourful characters determined to tell it like it really was Curtain up! Our journey through time can begin.
