Locarno is a beautiful town located near the Swiss Alps that's perfect for visitors who want to explore this beautiful natural area of Switzerland. Among the shores of the stunning Lake Maggiore you'll find a very pleasing near-Mediterranean climate and plenty of lakeside activities to take part in, while the hills above town are filled with many sites of historical interest. Hiring a car from Locarno Airport upon arrival would be our recommendation to ensure you're able to see everything this beautiful region has to offer in good time.
There is a lot to see here so hire a car from Locarno Railway Station and you'll find it convenient to get around. There is an abundance of nature here and a great place to visit is Falconeria Locarno; the beautiful wildlife here is a must-see. Giardini Pubblici is an ideal afternoon's relaxing walk and the beautiful lake here only adds to the idyllic atmosphere. There is a historic and beautiful castle to visit here called Castello Visconteo, which was built in the 15th century, where you'll find some great Roman and Bronze Age exhibits.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
