Domodossola was fine. It appears a little industrial, but is a local market town with many good discount shops for Swiss shoppers. It is difficult to recommend staying for more than a day or so, unless you have specific cycling or hiking goals in mind.

We had a short walk around this time whilst filling in time prior to catching the train. The shops were extremely varied and well worth a visit. The old part of the town contained many interesting buildings. I just wish that we could have spent more time here.

Only visited here to use the F.A.R.T. Tramway to Locarno in Switzerland and enjoyed the brief visit. Very friendly people and this would be great place to base yourself for so many day trips to places like Val Formazza, for the Falls and Crodo for some of the worlds best bread. However do not miss the trip on this spectacular tramway. The views are outstanding and route has to be seen to be believed. No one would attempt to build this today. One word of warning though and that is, Do not take photographs of the view from the Swiss/Italian Border. We were told in very strong terms that it is not permitted by the Guards at the crossing point but given no reason. The snow made this trip even more spectacular. If in the Domodossola area then make this trip as Locarno too is well worth a visit. Like wise if in Locarno then do the trip in the other direction.

Cute old town.
I visited it on a Saturday market so I found it so full of charm...
Near to Switzerland with very kind people and restaurants with tasty food.
The sausages are amazing!

Being the owner of the famous bed and Breakfast, La Casa del Giardiniere,near Lake Maggiore, we are constanly being asked for places to go that are a bit off the tourist track.
Well only about 40 minutes drive from Stresa, down the super strada to Domodossola and you arrive into another world. The journey is littered with Alpine hillside villages, all full of interesting.
Using Domodossola as your hub venture into the mountains via Crodo, famous for it's mountain breads, cheeses, and yogurts...there is a lovely shop and cafe where you could buy provisions for a picnic. Another 30 minutes up the mountain tracks brings you to Baceno, where you have a choice one road forks to the right and takes you to the Toce river waterfalls in Val Formazza, spectacular the highest in Europe, plus some stunning walks.
My favourite is to take the left fork at Baceno and head for a circular walk around Alpe Devero taking in the picturesque village of Crampiolo...I have not had a guests who hasn't returned brimming with thanks, and photographs to remember for a life time. Believe me there awaits a rare treat in store. For me a day in Alpe Devero is loke takinga weeks holiday, the air, the silence, the scenery..bellissimo
