The Mediterranean soul of Switzerland lies in the sunny south, separated from the rest of the country by the majestic peaks of the main Alpine ridges.
Wild valleys, rugged rock massifs, picturesque lakes, and idyllic vineyards form the landscape. In this idyllic setting, ripening, fruity wines are highly appreciated by connoisseurs inside and outside of Switzerland’s borders.
2 of the 12 Swiss Unesco World Heritage Sites can be found in Ticino. The proud castles of Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro in Bellinzona have received the prestigious title in 2000. Three years later, Monte San Giorgio followed suit with its unique natural treasures. Millions of years old caves and marine fossils from the Middle Triassic are hidden by dense primeval forests and promise an experience full of discoveries and adventures. Living tradition and the marvels of modern times sensitively intertwine with each other in the dreamy valleys of the canton. In one day, you can follow in the footsteps of 007 and dash down the 220m high Verzasca dam wall undaunted by death, and shortly afterward relax in one of the thermal springs laid out by the ancient Romans and relax each and every muscle in your body.
For those who want to have the full experience when it comes to Mediterranean nature, a visit to the Brissago Islands is an absolute must. Exotic subtropical plant collections of the northern and southern hemispheres give the impression of having arrived in the Garden of Eden.
