Thanks to the good train connections and the excellent offers such as the Ticino Ticket, travelling by train is an ideal way to get to Ticino and get around comfortably by public transport. Locarno railway station is only a few minutes’ walk from the Piazza Grande, the heart of Locarno, and therefore easily accessible on foot, even with luggage. But also, those who arrive by car can avoid the notorious traffic jam with a little planning. Who knows, you might discover your new favourite route through the Grand Tour of Switzerland. If your journey takes you through the Gotthard or over the San Bernardino, take the exit “Bellinzona Sud” in the direction of Locarno.
