ASCONA SWITZERLAND for teenagers aged 13-17


Scents of mimosa, flowery quays lined with palm trees and a postcard-like setting: Ticino is without doubt one of the most beauti-ful cantons of Switzerland. As for Ascona, could you dream of a better place for a language study stay in Italian speaking Switzerland?

Situated on the banks of Lake Maggiore, in a sun-drenched bay, Ascona has become one of the most beautiful lakeside resorts of Italian-speaking Switzerland. There, you will enjoy breathtaking surroundings for active holidays, livened up by artistic and cultural discoveries as well as many watersports. Stroll through the small streets with a thousand shops or go for a walk along the magnificent lakeside promenade. With so much to see and do in Ancona, your only regret will be that the days seem too short to try everything!
