Ascona, one of the most beautiful fisherman villages at the Lago Maggiore, is a trendy vacation resort today.
Ascona is situated directly on the lake Lago Maggiore in a warm bay and the spoilt vacationist can enjoy a lot of sun during the whole year through. Ascona has a marvelous shore promenade, the "piazza". Excursions to the near valleys or on the mountains with a fantastic view and miles long walks offer much for change.
Here you find the best hotels and the finest kitchens and practice every kind of sports, as sailing, swimming, water-ski, surf, ride, tennis, golf, trekking, and in winter even skiing.
Although I have traveled a lot,for my opinio, Ascona and the surroundings are and remain the most beautiful places of the world.
