Make your dreams come true…
In this website we will help you to discover the pearl of Switzerland.
Ticino is situated in the southern part of Switzerland.
One of the main attractions is the remarkable beauty of the landscape, typically alpine but blessed by a mild Mediterranean climate and tropical vegetation.
With over 2,300 hours of sunshine a year, the area around Lago Maggiore is the sunniest in Switzerland. Rare species of flora have found ideal growing conditions. Palms and camelias, are already in blossom when the slopes of Cimetta (5,600 ft) are still hosting skiers.
How to get to Ticino
- There are daily flights from London (Heathrow or Gatwick) to Milan Malpensa. From Milan there is a comfortable shuttle service to Ticino, taking about 1 hour.
- There are daily flights from London (Heathrow or Gatwick) and Manchester to Zürich; from Zürich you can enjoy a 3 hours train journey to Locarno, crossing the beautiful landscape and scenery of the Swiss Alps.
On request we can organise a private pick-up service from each Swiss/Italian airport named to your final destination.
