Mokeke Travel 2: Bellinzona

MokekeTravel-2-

Hello dear readers!

Here comes my next blog post about my second Mokeke-Travel. This time, we decided to visit the Italian part of Switzerland. We have chosen Bellinzona for our day trip, which is the capital city of the Canton of Tessin/Ticino.

Like always, we took the train from Lucerne to Bellinzona. There is a direct train connection and the whole journey takes approximately two hours until you reach the city. We planned to have a look at the Three Castles of Bellinzona, which is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Switzerland. Unfortunately, it was very windy and freezy so we only had a short walk through the old town and we went up to the Castelgrande. There are two other buildings, which I would love to visit – the Castle of Montebello and the Castle of Sasso Corbaro – but probably at a later time when the weather gets better…

Other highlights of Bellinzona are:
