Ascona is Locarno’s smaller twin on the opposite side of the delta of the Maggiore. It’s often called the "Pearl of Lake Maggiore". Ascona is worth a day trip! It is situated near the delta of the Maggia river, on the shores of a splendid and sunny bay. Ascona has grown a large pedestrian zone - traffic free - in its historical center. The village is known as a center for arts, and the backstreets are filled with art galleries and craft shops.
