Crossroads To Two Cultures in Ticino, Switzerland
By Andrew Thiel

Travel to Europe and experience the best of two cultures without crossing a border. Ticino, which lies in the far south of Switzerland, is a unique blend of Italian and Swiss cultures along with Mediterranean and mountainous climates. Hideaways Staff Writer, Andrew Thiel, learned you don?t need to travel to Italy to enjoy the music, cuisine, and charm of this vibrant culture. Not only will you get a taste of Italy, you?ll also find prompt and courteous service, typical of Swiss travel. The best of both worlds! And there are a few surprises unique to Ticino, including an unusual wine selection and a special ingredient that?s used in many of the local dishes. Follow along as Andrew visits Lugano, the cultural center of the region, and more traditional, quaint lakeside villages along the way. Learn what attracts visitors to this destination year round and gain insight into some of the most interesting accommodations in the region.
