What is there to do in Ticino when it rains in the Lake Maggiore region? Don’t worry! The Ascona-Locarno region’s few rainy days are never wasted. Discover all the activities suitable for when the weather isn’t quite as dry as it should be.

And on a rainy day?

Even with 2,300 hours of sun every year, it does sometimes rain. The region may be known for its landscapes and hiking but there are still plenty of things to do on wet days. Take advantage and give in to a bit of lazy wellness by treating yourself to a day at the spa.

Relax your body and mind as you bask in the warm water and steam while the rain falls outside. Or why not try some indoor sports, such as climbing in the gym? To keep your mind active, you could opt to see a film at the cinema or an exhibition at the museum or, if you really want to spice up a dreary day, you could try an escape room! If taking it easy when it rains is more your thing, a food and wine tour could be just your cup of tea. Or a shopping trip in Ascona’s Old Town or the Borgo, always a romantic experience that’s well worth trying. And, of course, you could always just sit down, relax and enjoy the rain.
