The Sottoceneri region
Home > Tourist Guide > Table of contents > Ticino > Sottoceneri

The SOTTOCENERI region south of Bellinzona and Locarno is much more developed than the Sopraceneri, with dozens of neat, prosperous towns crammed in between the narrowing international borders to east and west. The principal draw is the sophisticated and stylish city of Lugano, sited on a bay of the glorious Lago di Lugano, which twists out into Italy on both sides. Jutting out into the lake just a stone’s throw from the city is the sun-drenched Ceresio peninsula, dotted with idyllic Italianate country villages and crisscrossed by some of the loveliest easy walks in the canton.
