Walked along the car free old town was really nice. There are many choices of restaurant and many shops around. Found a bit of trash in some part of the lake, but still worth to visit.

We had a very nice lunch after after doing a long scenic walk along the waterfront shops and parkland. It's a great place to have lunch and enjoy the wonderful view of the lake and mountains. We'd definitely go back whenever possible.

You won't be alone here on a sunny weekend day, but it still is a pleasant stroll on the lakefront, cramped with restaurants and crowded with tourists.

Car free, with plenty of benches and trees, fantastic views of the lake and the islands of Brissago. Particularly pleasant during the jazz weeks and chestnuts week-end

Drove to Ascona having seen all that we wanted to see further south on the lake, and Ascona was nice - not mind-blowing nor worth going out your way to see.
