Ticino in Claro above Bellinzona
The Ticino ( Italian Ticino, in ancient times Ticinus ) is a left tributary of the Po, which flows from Switzerland to northern Italy. He has given the Canton of Ticino the name.
The Ticino arises when Nufenenpass southwest of the Gotthard massif and flows through the series after the Bedrettotal, the Leventina Valley, the Riviera and the Magadinoebene before it flows into the Lago Maggiore ( Lake Maggiore ).
On the banks of the river, probably near Vigevano, about 25 km northwest of Pavia, the fight took place on Ticinus 218 BC between the Romans and the Carthaginian general Hannibal.
