Just about 8% of the Swiss speak Italian, they are of course Catholics and live mainly in the beautiful canton of Ticino on the southern slopes of the Alps, a stunning mix of tall mountains, breathtaking Alpine lakes and palm trees.
Ticino is indeed very close to Italy, and to reach this canton from Western Switzerland, the shortest way cuts through Italy.
