  • Get to the Valle Verzasca is not difficult. Have bus to go from the Locarno train station. The place is very nice, especially the stretch where the bridge jump. The river water has a unique coloring in an emerald green crystalline. During the summer, some brave entering the icy waters.

  • During our stay in Locarno, we were also in the Verzasca Valley. We went through the whole Valley by car. Despite the rain, we saw beautiful nature and water with rock formations.
