Normally, the best way is to go through Domodossola, change to FART train to Locarno, then bus/taxi to Ascona. No need to reserve train seats, but I would pay for ist class for the narrow gauge train, to get a better view of beatiful Centovalli. When are you traveling? Since the tunnel fire you are now faced with many alternatives: e.g. bus over the mountain, shuttle trains, detour to Andematt, etc. Nice excuse to spend more time to see more countryside scenery.

Will you share your experience of reaching Ascona? A better view of beatiful Centovalli is worth paying more for a train, believe me. I'd like to have http://essaywriting.center studying instead of me while I'm traveling through all the beautiful destinations.
