    The Valle Vigezzo is a beatiful Valley with an entrance in Italy and another in Switzerland. It is a fantastic place both in summer than in Winter. In summer there is a lovery cycling/walking road in the woods that connects most of the villages. The same road in the winter months is a perfect crosscountry ring.
    From the valley it is possible with a cable-car to reach La Piana where downhill skiing is possible. In the valley there are many chaming villages.
    The altitude is not very high and many vegetation is present, so also in the very hot summer days it is possible to find a spot in the shadow.

    This museum catalogs the lives of young children who performed a perilous job, with many dying young. This museum is a must see!!

    As you explore this quaint alpine village, it is well worth the time to go into this wonderful small baroque church which is just off the main plaza. Linger a bit, disconnect from the hustle of your travels. Recognize that the faithful have been worshiping here for many generations.

    S. Maria Maggiore is a very nice place to stop on your trip from Sempione through Val Vigezzo - Centovalli to Locarno.

    We stopped here with the kids. We didn't get the menu at the table. We got some rosted meat and 3 small beers. When we got the check the 3 small beer were totalling 15 euros, so 4.50 each instead of the 3 euro that was published on the menu inside. When we asked for explanation they said that was the correct value. Check prices before ordining. Not very transparent

    The funivia is a modern Cabinovia for 8 peope (4 in Covid time). During a very hot day we went to the Piana. The temperature inside the cabin was really hot, there was a very little air circulation.
    The price is not so cheap but absolutely in line with others in Italy.
    The Piana is a very nice starting point for walking tours.
