Switzerland Ascona La Tavolata Planturista

Before the New Year in the Swiss touristic town of Ascona in Italian-speaking canton of Ticino the feast-fair is held, called «La Tavolata» (ital. tavola – table).

Right along the lake in the city center a long table in a few tens of meters is placed, at which you can sit comfortably, speak with friends or just with your neighbors at the table and eat delicious Swiss specialties, watching at the same time on the lake and the mountains.

Many stalls around offer to taste all kinds of Swiss cuisine: raclette, fondue, dozens of kinds of cheese, made of alpine milk in the mountain Swiss farms, Rösti and many other Swiss specialties.
