Hi. I am planning to be in Ticino area from 14-16 Dec. I am torn between staying in Locarno or Bellinzona. We would like to see the castles of Bellinzona, but we are also lured by what Locarno has to offer, especially the Christmas festivities. Unfortunately we don't have much time to spend in this region.

Is it a good idea to stay at Locarno and make a day trip to the castles via bus service?

We are travelling to Locarno/Bellinzona from Zermatt and then onward to Lucern after that.

Thanks for your advice!

Hi Ashley17

Locarno has a wonderful location on the lake.

Bellinzona is easy to access from there.

Trains work well. I've not used a bus, but, if there is one, it will be in the timetable, so you can compare.

Check the timetable:

Personally, I'd choose Locarno.
