Beautiful square with lake views
Sep 2018 • Solo
Piazza G. Motta is a beautiful square located in the promenade of Ascona, a city of Ticino canton, in Switzerland. From here, you can see the lake and mountains. Also there are a lot of restaurants in the surroundings of the square, so you can come here to walk, see the lake, eat or drink. Very nice place.

Pedestrian-friendly plaza adjacent to the lake
Aug 2017 • Couples
We stayed in a hotel on the Piazza, we were initially flummoxed on how to get there since it appeared to be pedestrian-only. Not the case, you can get access to unload your luggage. You don't really need to leave the Piazza as everything you need is there. But we took a 90-minute trip on the water-bus. Get a Zone B ticket, it's only $15.60 CHF and you get to enjoy the lake even more.

Piazza filled with views, and life
Nov 2016 • Couples
Piazza Giuseppe Motta is the center of life in Ascona; the lake, the mountains, the view...

The multitude of restaurants and terraces is appealing... As always, thou, the best food is in the adjacent old town, along the cobblestone lanes... Both ways: enjoy the genuine atmosphere of Ascona...

Piazza full of life
Sep 2016 • Solo
Main street along the lake where one finds hotels and restaurants side by side. One can enjoy a drink or a meal and at the same time enjoy the view of the lake and people watching.

Charming piazza lined with plane trees
Aug 2016 • Couples
Cafes facing the lake. You can catch the ferries here. Plenty of shops, galleries and restaurants in the alleyways behind.

A nice place, be careful with the restaurants
Jul 2016
This place is unique and fascinating, definitely worth a visit if you are in the region. I would recommend to choose bars and restaurants carefully though as most of them are way overpriced and often the quality is not so good. A nice idea could be to make a picnic or buy a take-away pizza to eat on the lake side.
