In the southern part of Switzerland, in the Canton Ticino lies an unassuming city of Bellinzona. It is often by-passed while heading south to Italy, but from what we saw, it is worth a stop. The old town is charming with plenty of outdoor cafes, and if you only have a few hours, as we had, we would recommend the three castle hike. We only had time to see two of the three, but the views are fantastic, and the castles well-preserved and part of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
