“Il nuovo stabilimento Termali Salini & Spa Lido Locarno si divide in tre zone, una riservata alla sauna, una ai bagni e una al bistrò. La zona delle vasche, esclusivamente di acqua salina, è articolata su due piani. Lungo un percorso di base, che prevede anche trattamenti facoltativi, agli ospiti è offerto un vero e proprio rituale di rilassamento, che permette di immergersi in un altro mondo e lasciarsi il quotidiano alle spalle.”

“Die Bolle di Magadino, zwischen der Mündung der Verzasca und Magadino, sind eine Landschaft von naturwissenschaftlich anerkanntem Wert (IPP, 1802) Die Bolle di Magadino, eine der neun Auenlandschaften, denen die Schweizerische Akademie der Naturwissenschaften internationale Bedeutung zuerkannte, umfassen das Deltagebiet der Flüsse Ticino und Verzasca am Maggioresee. Die Bolle beherbergen eine besondere, für das Übergangsgebiet zwischen Wasser und Festland eigentümliche Pflanzen- und Tierwelt. Dank der Errichtung von Naturlehrpfaden ist es möglich, die Bolle zu besichtigen, ohne ihre natürlichen Bewohner allzu sehr zu stören oder zu beschädigen. Alle Jahreszeiten eignen sich für einen Besuch der Bolle: wenn Schnee liegt, sieht die Landschaft geradezu märchenhaft aus! ”

“Beach in the center of Maccagno, 3 minutes walk from Golfo Gabella. From the beach you can see the Castles of Cannero that are on the other side of the lake on the Piedmont shore. The pebble and grass beach is one of the largest on Lake Maggiore. The beach is equipped with baths and showers and nearby you can find a basketball court, beach volleyball court, skate park and a playground for children. You can spend the whole day and have a picnic just a few steps from the lake under the shade of many plants. In summer there is a kiosk with bar service, pizzeria and restaurant”
