Onsernone (Maggia) and the Verzasca valley:
Onsernone Valley and Lake Cavegna: a wild, deeply-cut valley running from east to west along the course of the sun, ridges so steep as to be inaccessible and sunny villages that hug the southern wall halfway up on terraced grounds. Far away from urban centres, this valley has preserved its calm and quiet, retaining its enchanting nature and culture. The Maggia Valley divides and branches, spreading out like a hand, into Val di Campo, Val di Bosco, Val Bavona, Val Lavizzara, and Val Peccia. It takes the form of a large, knobbly hand with crooked fingers, criss-crossed by blue streams that are perfect for swimming, bursting forth from alpine passes and mountain ridges.
The Verzasca Valley:
This valley is wild, romantic, and fascinating. It has maintained the typical and ancient character of the southern alpine valleys. The region has been developed for tourism, offering many interesting sights and activities in the areas of culture, nature and sports.
Boat trips on Lake Maggiore: Intra market (Italy).
The town of Intra-Verbania boasts on the most popular markets at the Lago Maggiore. The coastal road towards the border crossing of Brissago (Madonna di Ponte) is the most heavily travelled. Why not take the ferry or travel by hydrofoil craft?
Among the amazing offers of the market, especially worth tasting are the cheeses. Don't leave without having tried the cream cheese, Mozzarella, Parmigiano, and Pecorino. Also worth mentioning are the fresh fish from the lakes and the rivers, the cured meats and sausages, breads and honey products. Even in winter, the stands are filled with fresh produce. Shoes, handbags, belts and jackets made from leather are also especially popular - as in all markets in northern Italy.
