International Schools in Ticino
Ticino is Switzerland's southernmost canton, named for the Ticino River. This is Switzerland's only canton where the sole official language is Italian. It borders on Italy's regions of Lombardy and Piedmont, and it completely surrounds the tiny Campione d'Italia, an Italian enclave. As the crow flies, campione d'Italia is less than one kilometer from Italy at its closest point. However, because of hilly terrain, the shortest route to Italy is over 14 km.
