Charme, italianità, delightful lakes and subtropical gardens: the Tessin region offers all this and more, at all times of the year. In spring nature awakens in all its magnificence, in summer quiet mountain valleys and dreamy villages invite to rambling, the river- and lakeside walks to lingering and the lakes to sporting activities. Camellias in the valley, gentian in the alpine meadows, butterflies in the alternating light and shade of autumnal chestnut forests. Mild climate amid palm trees even at the cold time of the year with the sun shining on powder snow valleys: discover this little paradise!
Strolling around the markets, golf and tennis, swimming, sailing, cycling and many other sporting activities keep sports enthusiasts fit. Switzerland’s sunny corner offers relaxation, gastronomy and culture. Exhibitions, music events and festivals attract delighted visitors year after year. Modern architecture has gained its place alongside picturesque buildings. Stroll about, listen, taste and enjoy. The canton of Tessin welcomes you!
