Ticino Canton (Switzerland) - itinerary help!

Jump to last reply


I am planning to spend 5 days in Ticino Canton in September and am hoping for help/suggestions on an itinerary. I'll be flying into/out of Zurich and renting a car.

I'd like to hit:
-Bellinzona, for the castles (1 night)
-Ascona (1 night)
-Lugano (2 nights)
-Brissago islands (daytrip from Ascona)

My questions are:

1. Is it worth spending a night in Bellinzona? (I've heard there isn't much in town but the lit up castles at night are worth it).

2. Would it be better to spend 3 nights in Lugano and daytrip to Ascona (and the Brissago Islands)?

3. Is there anywhere else in Ticino Canton that I should visit? Not to be missed places?
