Verzasca Valley


Of the wonderfully beautiful valleys of the Ticino, the Verzasca valley is probably the most fascinating - for both romantics and adventure fans.

On the way to the Verzasca Valley, take a photo of the dam from the film 007 GoldenEye bunjee jumping and stop at the arched bridge Ponte dei Salti in Lavertezzo, the most famous place in the valley. Along the river on the Sentierone you can try Bobosco: Marble runs in the woods with pulleys, sluices and other ingenious mechanisms. Don’t forget to visit the museum and the Casa della Lana (the wool centre).
