Embark on an acoustic journey to explore a small part of the Ascona-Locarno region. A narrator will take you through some of the most representative places in the area, inviting you to enjoy the many wonderful things you can listen to, smell, touch and indeed taste along the way - transforming a simple walk into a complete, engaging, and accessible sensory experience. This is a service developed by Ticino Turismo, in collaboration with the four regional tourist organisations.
The lakeside of Ascona
From Piazza Giuseppe Motta, a picturesque urban drawing room-like area overseeing the water, to the Municipal Museum of Modern Art, a 16th century palace where paintings by illustrious artists are exhibited, Ascona offers culture experiences, lakeside landscapes and wide green spaces. The route is suitable for wheelchair users and accompanied visually impaired persons.
The Vallemaggia is crowned by mountain ridges on whose slopes alternate thick woods, meadows, crystalline lakes, and spectacular waterfalls. The proposed route is flat, accessible to accompanied visually impaired persons and wheelchair users, and starts and ends in Maggia, passing through the villages of Lodano and Moghegno.
