Mendrisiotto, a fascinating blend of tradition and dynamism, has all you need.
So come on, get packing!


Immerse yourself in the tranquility of Lake Ceresio and be surprised by delightful, hidden gems. Step back in time and explore the history of the Earth at Monte San Giorgio, of wild animals, at the Grotta dell'Orso (bear cave) and of man, at Tremona-Castello Archaeological Park.

Be captivated by human ingenuity discovering the Nevère cooling chambers, and the Cement Trail. Finally, admire the majesty of Monte Generoso as well as the breath-taking views that you can enjoy from up there.


Witness ad event which has been taking place for some 400 years. Take part in a real, living tradition. If on Holy Thursday and Good Friday you happen to be in Mendrisiotto, you should not miss the stunning scenes brought to life by the Mendrisiotto Holy week processions. Since 2019, they have been included in the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Let yourself be tempted: you will not regret it.


Why not have a taster of Swiss Tourism’s Grand Tour Of Switzerland project by trying your first section of the journey in Ticino?
It’s a great way to admire the very best of Switzerland, and there’s
no better place to start than Ticino!

But don’t leave before indulging yourself with a little shopping, in the temple
of elegance that is FoxTown, the largest Factory Store in the South of Europe.

Nature, culture and shopping: a holiday which lets you grow!
