A day trip from Lake Como to experience the most enchanting Swiss villages against the backdrop of the crystal blue waters of the Verzasca River .
Your van and driver will pick you up at your Lake Como area accommodation and from there you’ll embark on the day trip of a lifetime.
Just a short ride north and over the Swiss border you’ll enjoy the fairytale Swiss backdrop of typical Ticino country homes and villages as you navigate along the crystal-clear Verzasca River. As you pass the Verzasca Dam, your driver will point out the famous 220 meter drop where scenes from the James Bond film Goldeneye were shot.
At Lavertezzo, home to the postcard-perfect Romanesque stone bridge where you can see locals and tourists alike jumping off the bridge into the stunning emerald waters of the Verzasca river. Relax in the crystal clear waters or head further into the Valley for lunch in one of the most charming villages in all of Switzerland where local artisans, brewers and cheesemakers comprise some of the 87 residents.
The final stop on this unforgettable day trip is one of the most enchanting towns along Lake Maggiore: Ascona. At just 196 meters above sea level, Ascona is the lowest-lying town in Switzerland, enjoying mild weather while being often surrounded by snow-capped peaks. It embodies the marriage of picture-perfect Switzerland with the Italian Dolce Vita.
Stroll along the lakeside promenade, enjoy a coffee in one of the old town coffee shops or sit and relax while enjoying a spritz and some people watching in this Swiss-Italian lakeside haven.
