The Pearl of Lake Maggiore
Situated on the banks of Lake Maggiore, in a sun-drenched bay, Ascona has become one of the most beautiful lakeside resorts of Italian-speaking Switzerland. There, you will enjoy breathtaking surroundings for active holidays, livened up by artistic and cultural discoveries as well as many watersports. Stroll through the small streets with a thousand shops or go for a walk along the magnificent lakeside promenade; allow yourself to be swept away by the charm of this former fishing village for a few moments, before reimmersing yourself with delight in the exciting activities’ programme. With so much to see and do in Ascona, your only regret will be that the days seem too short to try everything!
