Good for people watching

With an hour or so to spare, what better way to spend it than stopping at a cafe in the piazza, taking refreshment and watching the world go by

great cobblestone square
Nov 2020
the central main square of Locarno is famous for the film festival held here, but even without festival it is always a great place to stroll accross and sit on one of the many restaurants and bars along the cobblestone square. Out of the tourist season, Locarno is a rather sleepy place - and the square even more enjoyable to visit.

Pleasant piazza
Oct 2020 • Couples
We were here on Sunday morning when things were a little quiet but this enabled us to admire the buildings fronting the piazza.

Beautiful square
Sep 2020 • Couples
You cannot miss it on the way to the old town Locarno, the Film festival sits there in the summer (without Covid)
The old town is pretty with plenty of shops and restaurants.

Vibrant area
Jul 2020
Piazza Grande is a nice location close to the lake even when there are no film festival. It is vibrant and with lots of activity day and night. Lots of opportunities for getting coffee, ice at cafes in the neighbourhood.

Very nice Piazza
Jan 2020 • Couples
For Special Events or end of the year Party. The Piazza is the Center of Locarno Where everybody goes there. You find Many good Restaurants and a good Place for Shopping. Today Jan 1st 2020, there was a big event at 11.00 am. A big apero and Snacks. The local Salami was more than excellent. Live Music and authorities from Locarno were there. The live Music was very good. To our surprise everything was for Free.

Large square
Oct 2019
Stroll the famous arcades or stop and people watch at a restaurant or cafe. A lovely huge square, which hosts the weekly market on Thursdays.

Disappointing
Oct 2019
Just a very usual square, hardly any shops and very few restaurants. On Thursdays, you have the market. There too nothing special. Don’t waste your time there.
