About this town walk

This self-guided walking tour leads you through the best parts of Ascona in very little time. You'll walk through picturesque alleys, along the lakefront with many restaurants, along lots of little shops, three churches, and a viewing point overlooking the town.

We recommend to allocate at least one hour for this walk so you'll have time to take pictures. Take more time to include a break on the lake (well worth it).
