About this city walk

This is a self-guided walking tour in Locarno along the lake, the town square, many shops, a few small parks, the Visconteo castle and the Sant' Antonio church.

The walk itself does not take that long, but we recommend to allocate 2 to 4 hours so there's time to take pictures, have a break and perhaps browse a few of the many shops.
