Piedmont and the adjoining Swiss Ticino is a paradise for nature lovers and fans of water sports. Nature here is overwhelming: lush greenery, rare flowers, streams and waterfalls. In addition to Lake Maggiore, the 'Orta' is also nearby. Around the lake you will find something for everyone and these facilities are open year round. Swimming, surfing, sunbathing, hiking through majestic mountains (where [winter] skiing is also possible) or a boat trip to one of the islands (Brisago, Isola Madre, Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori and Isola Borromee). The Swiss city of Locarno, where the famous film festival is held every August, is about three minutes' drive away. Numerous picturesque mountain villages such as Val Vigezzo, Baveno, Mergozzo and Motta Rossa should definitely not be missed either. In the winter, ski Domenico-Ciamporino! In late July-early August there are many film and music festivals around the lake. At the tourist office you can get a roadmap that highlights all the gastronomic delights of the region so you can taste and buy typical local products.
