Never knew that Basel was the drug capital of Switzerland. Well you learn something new everyday!
I do not believe that Novartis and Hoffroche would love your interpretation of drugs

Beside the many museums in Basel, and many nice and good restaurants, have you ever had a headache or a cold or a serious illness ? Yes, companies in Basel are among the world leaders in regard to medicaments. Basel also is home to an excellent opera-house and to a major football stadium. And of course is home also to nice bars and pubs
Liverpool is home to Anfield a football stadium that opposition supporters are not caged!

Re: Ticino - "The Liverpool of Switzerland"

Ticino is a dead land, in the last 10 years quality jobs have been lost, money repatriated to Italy and Shenghen agreement created a downward pressure on salaries....and no Anfield to enjoy football
To paraphrase Morrissey, Ticino is full of crashing bores...
To funny people around: please contact me before depression kills me

But you ought to abstain from describing Swiss-German retirees as "dead" ! or as "crashing bores" True, the Ticino increasingly depends on the Swiss-German and German retirees settling there.

But just right now, the tourism offices of the Ticino are launching a campaign to attract more "youngish" tourists

Re: Ticino - "The Liverpool of Switzerland"

If they want to boost tourism in Tecino, they would be wise treating the tourists decently, that way they could keep the ones they already have and add more.

There is now a new co-operation agreement with Milano-Tourism. The Milanese manager in charge there however insists that the Ticinesi had to improve standards quite a bit. He would like to combine programs for Varese, Como, Lugano and Locarno and sell the group as a kind of "North of the Milano area". As I read, the Ticino counterpart promised to work on the matter

"Treating the tourists decently" ? To say that they do not treat the tourists decently is a bit a strong wording, but that standards are subject to improvement and hotel prices are far too high is rather obvious.

Personally, I wish the tourists would stay away, as they just create excess traffic.
