Sleep in or explore Ascona. This colorful former fishing village is a favorite with artists and an important cultural venue. Blessed with an exceptional climate, Ascona is on a long, narrow lake called Lago Maggiore. Its shores are dotted with sandy beaches and great green meadows.
In the evening we will gather for a welcome dinner at a local cafe in Ascona. This transitional time will give us a chance to reminisce about our northern journey and anticipate the week ahead.
