The building that houses the Caffè dell'Arte dates back to the 15th century, and is one of the historic structures in the ancient section of Locarno.
The Caffè dell'Arte was founded in 2003, on the ashes of an old tavern, combining style and elegance with the fascination of art, contributing to the rebirth of Locarno's historic center.
The Bed and Breakfast Caffè dell'Arte was opened in 2007.
The Bed & Breakfast started on the first floor with only two rooms, and then grew to three and finally arrived at seven total. Seven different rooms, all different from one another, with unique names and designs.
