A beautiful place of still untouched well preserved traditional rustici (stone houses). Several small villages worth to visit. Beware of tourist ripoff in some restaurants. But you will never be disappointed if you eat at Pizzo Vogorno, open every day as the owner is not afraid of work.

This is Valle Verzasca which is a valley in the Locarno district of the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland. Accessible by bus, car, motorbike or camper van. Travelling as... More

Drove up to this gem on a cool cloudy day from Como and it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. What else can you say about this place that the pictures don't already tell. Point Blank, if your anywhere close, it's imperative you make the jaunt to this slice of paradise. My only complaint was I... More

Valle Verzasca is one of the natural wonders of Ticino. Stunning nature with the amazing river and it's riverbed made of rocks that have been moulded in millions of years.

It's a beautiful valley in the hinterlands of Locarno. The river is clear and cold, ideal for a short swim in mid summer. Along the valley, you find many tiny pretty villages. Great to take some pics, have good food and a short walk. Unfortunately along the river, only limited hiking is possible and many visitors have to move along... More

Magnificent valley full of interesting spots along the river. There are museums, monuments, plenty of hikes, a walk of sculptures... But avoid July and August as the valley easily gets very crowded with tourists! Spring and Autumn are highly recommended instead...
