Ticket to ride: a panoramic train running close to Lake Maggiore

Built on the track of an ancient Roman way, connecting Oscella (Domodossola) and Leocarnum (Locarno), the Vigezzina railroad was inaugurated in 1923, becoming a strategic connection for several small villages in the valleys close to lake Maggiore. Still today, even after severe damages caused by a flood in 1978, the railroad has a strong commercial and touristic function, connecting Sempione and Gottardo districts.<br>This exclusive guided tour will allow you to enjoy a panoramic ride on this small and fascinating train, travelling from Italy to Switzerland across hidden and enchanting valleys. Thanks to a stop, you will have the chance to discover nice villages, such as Santa Maria Maggiore. A different point of view on Lake Maggiore beautiful outback.

Last summer I took my four grandkids for a truly wonderful day out to see these magnificent birds fly so close over our heads. It was brilliant, the staff were good and very helpful and this year I am taking a group from a club for the experience too! Well worth it.

It's a interesting show and the different birds are well explained. It is possible to visit also the birds that are not in the show.

Locarno's falconaria is 10 minutes by taxi from the promenade. I have been to many zoos across the globe but this was the first time to see a falconaria. We saw many types of big birds, falcons, eagles, owls vultures and many more. The amazing part was the one hour show, a great experience, how these vultures are trained and controlled; I enjoyed it despite the Italian narration which I didn't understand. It's recommended visit for the whole family; the visit won't take more than 2 hours if you know when is the time if the show.

Fantastic show with a wonderful combination of free raptors and the people who train, show and care for them. The birds fly closer to the audience than one would believe possible creating interaction with the audience. It's thrilling to watch and feel the wind of their wings as they fly over and around the audience, their perches and cages. It's easy to forget to take photos as you lose yourself in the moment of watching them fly, flip baskets on the ground, stomp snakes to death (fake-rubber) and catch prey on the fly. This is not scary for children as the trainers wow them with their skills and commentary including funny things about the birds We took 2 children (4&6 yrs) that had no previous contact with birds, they watched enthralled, loved the bird on the hat and now want to be a bird trainer when they grow up. I can easily say this is the best bird show due to the amazing range of trained birds and the pace of the whole show. It's so encouraging to know there are people with the care, time to work with these birds and provide information and education.
