Onsernone-Maggia-Verzasca valley: Onsernone valley / Lake Cavegna:
a wild, deeply carved V-valley, which is aligned in its east-west orientation with the direction of sun; steep, barren valley sides; half way up the terraced southern slopes of sunny villages glued to the rocks. Away from urban centres the valley has its stillness and peace, retains its special magic of nature and culture. The Maggia valley branches out, forks and divides itself like a hand: in to Val di Campo and Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara and Val Peccia; a large hand with gnarled and crooked fingers, laced with blue waterlines for bathing, which springs from Alpine passes and mountain ridges.
is a wildly romantic and fascinating valley, which has retained the primitive characteristics of southern alpine valleys. It is a tourist area, which offers many interesting things in culture as well as in landscape or even with respect to sports.
Cruise ride on Lake Maggiore: Intra market (Italy).
The city Intra-Verbania also has one of the crowded markets at Lake Maggiore to show off. The shoreline street towards the border crossing of Brissago (Madonna di Ponte) is usually very busy. Why not go by ship or hydrofoil?
The following are available from a wide range of options: Cream cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, pecorino, fish from the lake and rivers, a wide choice of meats, bread and pastries, variety of honey products. Even in winter the market stalls are loaded with fresh vegetables. Shoes, bags, belts and jackets made of leather are a big hit like in other northern Italian markets.
