Tour description

The «Bellinzona Artkey» audioguide transforms a walk round the town into a trip back in time.
The Castles of Bellinzona: Once a fortified barrier at the gateway to the Alps, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The long history of Bellinzona lives on in its monuments and other important vestiges of its fascinating past. Traces of its cultural heritage are not only documented in the museums of the three castles or at the Villa dei Cedri civic museum, but can be seen all over the area.

The new audioguide «Bellinzona Artkey» takes you on a tour of the town in 22 stages accompanied by the voices of our guides.


The audioguide can be used by two persons at the same time and can be hired for Fr.5.- at the three castles or at the information centre of Bellinzona Turismo situated in the courtyard of the Town Hall.
