The James Bond “Golden Eye” movie helped to make this valley famous with a bungee jump scene off the Verzasca Dam. However, this valley isn’t famous only because of Hollywood, as Valley Verzasca has become a highly attractive place for tourists.Read more
Positioned in a valley surrounded by magnificent Swiss Alps, lies the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz. I have heard so many excellent things about Bad Ragaz but, until now, I have not had a chance to visit. I was blown away by the experience and wish I’d visited sooner. It’s a perfect place for a vacation for relaxation and wellness. In fact, I think the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is like Disneyland for adults, as everything you could want is in one resort. It is not a resort just for mature adults, it caters to family and young couples. The diversity of choices for restaurants and activities offers something for everyone.
Bad Ragaz is famous for their healing waters, their 36.5 celsius thermal waters, the perfect bath temperature. They have an abundance of indoor and outdoor pools, spas and saunas. In total, there are over 7300 square meters of natural thermal pools in the resort. What an incredible feature to offer your hotel guests.Read more
After years of living in Lugano, I figured it was about time I hiked Monte Brè. More than once I’ve been told that Monte Brè has some of the best views over Lugano, and that I never doubted. But now I can concur, Monte Brè offers breathtaking views.
You have a few options when hiking Monte Brè. First, you can hike up or down. As we only had the morning to hike we opted for the easier hike, going down. The 5.5 km (3.4 miles) hike down Monte Brè was fairly straight forward with well marked out hiking paths along the way. It took us about 1.5 hours to hike down.
I think I may have found my new favorite hike in Ticino. Last week I did a hike with some friends and fell in love with the area. The hiking route was absolutely gorgeous, much of it was above the tree line passing by three amazing alpine lakes: Lago Tremorgio, Lago di Leit and Lago di Morghirolo.Read more
We were fortunate to spend a weekend at the wonderful, recently remodeled, centrally located Hotel Felix in Zürich. Just a short walk from the Zürich HB station (250 meters) you’ll arrive at Hotel Felix situated in the old town surrounded by an abundance of cafes and bars. The entrance to the Hotel is simplistic, yet chic, with color schemes that blend well offering an ambience of calmness.Read more
