  • Such a beautiful place---I don't want others to know about it! It's crowded in summer, but one visit and you'll know why. It's absolutely stunning! It's a must see if you visit Ticino, and worth every bit of time getting there. One caveat: check the return times of the buses, as they get irregular as the day progresses. 5 stars, all the way!
  • A must see for everyone staying in the area. The pictures are beautiful but having the chance to witness such landscape with your own eyes is priceless.
  • It is such a lovely place, prefer it visiting in spring when everything's green and dive in the crystal clear river.
  • I just love this valley, so many beautiful places..
  • Beautiful bridge and clear mountain river swim location.
