The Piazza Grande with its arcades is one of the largest and most well-known town squares in Switzerland. The vibrant meeting place of Locarno. Stroll under the famous arcades, enjoy a cup of coffee or a lunch while shopping and enjoy a varied day!
In this place of meeting and vibrant heart of the city, the business and cultural life takes place; the weekly market on Thursday, the Moon & Stars concerts in July and the evening screenings during the August film festival.Weekly market is on Thursdays from 9:00 to 17:00.
The Piazza Grande of Locarno is the heart of the city, with its harmonious Lombard-style arcades that stretch for over 700 meters, with many shops and restaurants among them. The square is the salon of the city and is lined with ancient buildings. Especially in summer he is especially busy when Moon & Stars and the International Film Festival take place.
And a cheap place to stay is: casa-davinci.ch It is a backpacker hotel: simple, well managed, quiet (day and night). For dinner there are fine restaurants nearby, e.g. Campagna Trattoria Pizzeria, on via Castelrotto 16. Mega fein - away from the tourists.
And Bernd Fasching and team also make useful recommendations. Good stay! Pia
