Ascona is distinguished, picturesque, elegant and romantic. Boutiques, restaurants, art galleries and antique shops line up in the alleys of the historic pedestrian street. The lakeside promenade, reminiscent of the fishing village of yesteryear, is today a holiday paradise under the motto of "joie de vivre". Ascona is also the birthplace of Giovanni Antonio Serodine, one of the greatest painters of the 17th century in Italy, whose precious works are still kept there. Thanks to the presence of important intellectuals and artists, the town has been a meeting place for Central European culture since the beginning of the 20th century.

Ascona has developed from a once nondescript fishing village into a small town of 5,000 inhabitants. The old car-free center with the Piazza Guiseppe Motta and the alleys and courtyards behind it has been largely preserved. The promenade of Ascona is widely considered the prettiest promenade on Lake Maggiore.lago-maggiore.de/staedteorte/ascona.html
