Known as the pearl of Lago Maggiore, Ascona is an exclusive Swiss holiday resort. This small town is filled with a mosaic of colourful, Mediterranean-style houses. It looks like a painting in the open air, inviting you to step right in. There is a fantastic panorama from the shores of the lake.
A little further away, in the heart of the town, you will find yourself on the trail of artists who once lived here. The tracks lead into the hills out of the town and up to the famous Monte Verità, an oasis of peace in a natural setting.
Every year, Ascona hosts important cultural events, including the famous JazzAscona, one of the largest international jazz festivals. This locality promises plenty of fun and enjoyment with its themed markets, town fairs, festivals, shops and restaurants.
