Ticino is the only Swiss canton in which the official language is Italian. The mix of Swiss tradition and Italian lifestyle gives this part of Switzerland a unique character. Ticino has a mild climate, spring arrives earlier and autumn lingers longer than in the rest of Switzerland. Ticino's flora is typical for the coexistence of plants of both Alpine and Mediterranean origin. And Ticino has two lakes, both shared with Italy: Lake Lugano and Lake Maggiore. In summer sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and swimming in the lakes and rivers are highly popular. And if you want la dolce vita, search no more - it is waiting for you in the numerous sub-tropical parks and gardens here.
