Autumn Festivals in Ticino (2015 Schedule)

Sep 22, 2015 - Oct 11, 2015

- Free
Ticino Autumn Festivals

When you commute to work on a foggy autumn morning, remember that the sun still shines in the south of Switzerland…

For many reasons, Ticino is the perfect place to spend an autumn weekend: You could go for a hike in the chestnut forests, take a boat cruise on Lago Maggiore, or indulge in one of the traditional harvest festivals selling local food and crafts. And at the end of the day, of course, you could check in at a typical Swiss hotel!
