Ascona-Losone-Locarno…Day 2

On the second day of our Spring Break trip in Ticino, my son and I went for a bike ride in the morning, along the Maggia river close by the hotel, in Losone.

Here are some pictures of what we saw along the ride.

The Maggia river is also a big tourist attraction, since there’s the Maggia Valley, which is a very beautiful area where the river runs through, with cliffs, and waterfalls, and rock beaches etc. I never went all the way to the valley, but we went to the beginning of the area, and I was able to take a couple photos…they just give you an idea of what to expect there.

In the evening we went to dinner in a typical ‘Ticinese-Style’ restaurant, called  Grotto Broggini, a very rustic and cozy restaurant.

Even the kids had a good time there since there’s a playground on the premises too.
