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:
- The three castles: Castelgrande, Castello di Montebello, Castello di Sasso Corbaro
- Villa dei Cedri (art gallery)
- Old Town
- Teatro Sociale (theatre)
PS. You will find further information about Bellinzona on myswitzerland.com

We walked around the Castelgrande,
then we suddenly saw this Manga school called Myoko.
I have never heard about it before! Let’s have a look at the castle now: I actually wanted to walk up to the castle but it was so freezy…
