Meanwhile continuing the tour of Italy, today I will take you on the beautiful Centovalli railway, first to Santa Maria Maggiore and then across the border into Switzerland to Locarno. A lovely trip then back across the lake.
A very pretty alpine village.
Locarno, a Swiss town situated an the northern tip of Lake Maggiore. For me the highlight here was taking a funicular up the hill where I had excellent views and a chance to look around Madonna del Sasso. I would love to have carried on further up the mountain in a cable car, but time did not allow.
