Check out the summary of benefits of the different entry titles here.

Yes, it does! This year, thanks to our partnership with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), you can use public transport free of charge throughout Ticino for the duration of your entry title.

We suggest that you provide them with

  • a summary of what their entry titles allows them to access (you can use this overview for inspiration).
  • the map of the Festival with the main locations.
  • make sure your guests are aware that the Piazza Grande is completely paved with traditional cobblestones, so they can enjoy a pleasant evening in comfort.
