Clear, blue water

Some have compared the colours of Verzasca's waters to those of the Maldives, and the valley's waterfalls and canyons are undeniably a sublime sight. There are also numerous trekking and mountain bike routes at high altitudes, offering striking views from Lake Maggiore to the Alpine peaks.

Sunny vineyards

Over the centuries, distinctive terraces have been carved into the slopes of the Ticino landscape, making it the ideal soil to grow vines. Hence Ticino Merlot, a structured wine that satisfies the most refined tastes. With its wineries and vineyards, explore a unique region with a fresh pair of eyes.

The Verbano: what a spectacle!

Lake Maggiore is mesmerising and relaxing all day. And not just because of the wonderful landscape: it is a must-see for water sports lovers, keen sunbathers, fans of international events, and anyone wanting to get lost in village alleyways and explore genuine grotto restaurants and exclusive boutiques.
