Onsernone-Maggia- and Verzascatal: The Onsernonetal / Cavegna Lake
a wild, deeply cut V-valley, which is geared towards the sun in its east-west orientation; steep, impassable flanks of the valley; at half of the terraces south hang, the sunny villages on the cliffs. Far from urban centres, the valley has preserved its silence and tranquillity, it’s extremely special charm of nature and culture. The Maggia Valley branches off and is divided like a hand: into the Val di Campo and Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara and Val Peccia; a large hand with bent fingers, infused with blue waterways to swim in, which escape alpine passages and mountains.
The Verzasca Valley:
is a wildly romantic and fascinating valley, which has retained the original properties of the south-Alpine side valleys. This is a tourist region, which offers a lot of interesting offers, both in a cultural as well as scenic or athletic regard
Cruises on the Lago Maggiore: Intra market (Italy).
The city of Intra-Verbania also has one of the most frequented markets on the Lago Maggiore. The pathway leading to the border in Brissago (Madonna di Ponte) is normally strongly frequented. Why not use the ship or hydrofoil?
What stands out from the rich selection: cream cheese, mozzarella, parmigiano, Pecorino, fish from the lake and from the rivers, a large selection of meats, bread and sweet baked goods, a lot of honey products. Even in the winter, the market stands are filled with fresh vegetables. Shoes, bags, belts and jackets made of leather are a hit just like the other northern Italian markets.
The Brissago Islands,
with the botanical garden from the Canton of Ticino, offer us the possibility to escape sound, chaos and stress of everyday life. The exotic plants, the colours and smells promote our physical and psychic well-being.
