Lugano Turismo and other local tourism boards, have the pleasure to invite you to join them for an Instameet in Ticino, Switzerland on September. 4th with world-renowned adventure photographer Chris Burked who will be hosting the meet. This is a great opportunity to encounter the legendary American outdoor photographer and explorer and capture amazing photographs in the sunniest canton of Switzerland.
In a nutshell, an Instameet is where people meet in pre-determined place at a set time, to take photos (sometimes doing a photo walk) then upload them to Instagram.
This instameet will last the whole day: after having assembled in Lugano, you’ll do a photo walk along the lake, visiting the church Santa Maria degli Angioli and the Parco Ciani.
You’ll then take the train to Bellinzona, where you will visit the city centre and the castles, starting from the city hall.
You will then travel by train to Locarno and take the funicular up to the beautiful church Madonna del Sasso, in Orselina. From there you will walk back towards Piazza Grande in Locarno, ending the day with a drink at Kursaal Locarno.
At the end of the day, Chris Burkard will choose 10 winning photos among the ones uploaded during the day.
Everyone is Welcome! If you haven’t pre-registered here, simply come to the meeting points and register on-site (ask for Laura!)
