Got your tickets in your hand and your suitcase ready to go? Read on for a few basic Ascona tips before you jet off.
To help you find your feet, Ascona is located 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northwest of the significant city of Milan.
With so much to see and do in this part of Canton of Ticino, it's easy to understand why 5,000 people choose to call it home.
If you're organizing an escape to Ascona, you'll want to listen up! It's possible to save loads of money with a Travelocity airfare and accommodation deal. Simply select from more than 400 airline partners and 665,000 lodging options. Too many choices? We'll make it easy!
Our Customer 1st Guarantee gives you the added comfort of 24/7 personal assistance on everything from accommodations and flights to rental cars and experiences. If you somehow stumble upon an even lower price somewhere else, we will refund the difference^.
We're aware that sometimes things change. If you wish to alter your bookings, you won't incur charges from us. And as long as you get in fast, most accommodations won't charge you a fee either^.
If you'd like someplace upmarket to rest your weary head, slide between the plush sheets at the Garni La Meridiana.
Alternatively, consider the Hotel Garni Montaldi. It's a satisfying choice if you're traveling on a smaller budget.
There's nothing quite as exciting as hitting the tarmac in a new, unknown place. If you're hopping on a flight to Ascona, chances are you'll step out into Malpensa International Airport (MXP). It's 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the south of the downtown area. Collect your suitcase and get set to kick-start your adventure!
Thinking about taking a road trip during your stay in Ascona? A rental car will certainly be helpful here. Browse through some of the options on Travelocity, make a selection and hit the highway!
Picking up a vehicle straight from Agno Airport means that you don't have to deal with transfers and cabs. Head to Sixt and Europcar.
Why don't you pick up a rental vehicle from the middle of the city? You'll find Europcar at Garage Buzzini.
Madonna del Sasso is a pleasant place of worship. You can merely look at it from afar or find out if you can make arrangements to spend a bit of time inside.

Spend an hour or two admiring the cultural and historical magnificence of Piazza Grande, an important piece of the area's history.
And there's more.
There may not be such a thing as a safe bet, at Casino Locarno, but that's no excuse not to try a game of poker or blackjack.
Once you've spent a few days doing all there is to do in Ascona, world-renowned attractions are waiting just a stone's throw from here! Travelers from every corner of the globe flock to the Sacred Mountain of the Rosary. You can access it from Marzio, 16 miles (26 kilometers) away.
