Family-friendly Ticino: Kids welcome!

What makes Ticino the perfect destination for a family holiday? Like other Mediterranean cultures, it’s a place where children are always welcome.

Add to that a mild climate, beautiful scenery and a wide range of recreational activities, and you’ll find that the Italian part of Switzerland offers the ideal setting for a relaxed holiday rich with variety – especially in spring.

Take the cable car all the way up to Cardada, the local peak near Locarno, for a view of Switzerland’s lowest point (Lake Maggiore) and its highest (Dufour peak in the Monte Rosa massif). Along the 1.2-kilometer trail, kids can go ‘treasure hunting’ or run off some energy at one of the playgrounds.

Furthermore, both children and their parents can admire the view from Monte Generoso: the best mountain for lofty views in Ticino offers a breathtaking panorama that extends from the level of the Po River, to the Matterhorn, all the way up to the Gotthard massif.

How about a trip to Splash e Spa Tamaro, one of the largest and most modern water parks in Switzerland? While the little ones enjoy the slides and rides, parents can relax with one of the many different types of sauna and spa treatments on offer.

And don’t forget the possibilities offered by climbing parks, trekking tours with donkeys and lamas, and educational nature trails. I invite you to come explore all the different amenities and activities available in Ticino and discover your perfect family holiday.
