Experience Switzerland's Mediterranean side with a visit to Ticino, where Italian flair dominates. Palm trees, beaches, piazzas, and old churches fill this Italian-speaking canton. Mirroring blue lakes reflect the majestic Alps not far off. Enjoy "la dolce vita" with an espresso among the sub-tropical gardens, romantic landscapes, and historical architecture. Rich indigo flowers dot Alpine pastures and wooded hills rising around the shores of Ticino's lakes, while delicate white camellia line lakeshore promenades. The furthest southern state, Ticino boasts a much milder climate that the rest of the country and offers plenty of sunshine.
