As the waters of Lake Maggiore sparkle in the sun, couples stroll down the Piazza Grande and palm trees sway gently on the promenade. You could easily forget that you are actually in Switzerland!
On our lush cycling tour, you’ll discover one of the largest Swiss valleys in Ticino’s capital, the fantastic medieval city of Bellinzona. There is much to explore in the southernmost Swiss region, conveniently located close to Lake Maggiore’s stunning landscape.
The Maggia Valley of Ticino is wild and unspoiled, which you can view from our fabulous train journey included in this special cycling holiday.
But no matter how you discover this region, Ticino and Lago Maggiore will put a spell on you.
