Bosco Gurin: One of the most beautiful villages of Switzerland, this quaint village was founded in 1253 by Walser settlers and has been beautifully preserved with all its original houses and wood. Here you can truly dive into the past and spend an unforgettable time enjoying the calm, being active in nature and discovering traditions.
Onsernone (Maggia) and the Verzasca valley, the Onsernone valley and the Cavegna Lake: A wild, deeply furrowed, v-shaped valley, running from east to west along the course of the sun, with steep, almost inaccessible flanks, and sunny villages hugging the southern wall half way up on terraced grounds. Far away from urban centres, this valley has preserved its calm and quiet, bathed in an almost magical nature and culture. The Maggia valley is shaped like a hand; it spreads over the Val di Campo, Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara, and the Val Peccia like a large, knobbly hand with crooked fingers, and is crisscrossed by blue streams perfect for bathing and swimming coming from the alpine passes and mountain ridges. The Verzasca Valley: This valley is wild, romantic and fascinating. It has maintained the typical ancient character of the southern alpine valleys. The region has been developed for tourism offering many interesting sights and activities in the areas of culture, nature and sports.
Boat trips on the Lago Maggiore: Market in Intra (Italy): The town of Intra-Verbania boasts one of the most popular markets at the Lago Maggiore. The coastal road towards the border crossing Brissago (Madonna di Ponte) usually has a good amount of traffic. Why not take the ferry or travel by hydrofoil craft? Among the amazing market offers, the cheeses especially worth tasting. Don't leave without having tried the cream cheeses, Mozzarella, Parmigiano, and Pecorino. Also worth mentioning are the fresh fish from the lakes and the rivers, the cured meats and sausages, breads and honey products. Even in winter, the stands are filled with fresh produce. Shoes, handbags, belts and jackets made of leather are also especially popular - as in all markets in northern Italy. The Brissago islands: The botanical gardens in the canton of Tessin offer a perfect opportunity to escape the noise, chaos and stress of everyday life. The exotic plants, colours and smells increase our physical and psychological well being.
