Among the 12 not-to-be-missed trips of 2019 is the Vigezzina-Centovalli Railway


It is called the Foliage Train and is one of the 12 “natural events” not to be missed in 2019. An extraordinary journey, punctuated by nature and its beauties.

Italy – This is the Vigezzina-Centovalli Railway, which runs along a mountain route over a total length of over 52 kilometres, just over 32 in Italy and almost 20 in Switzerland, through the Vigezzo Valley and the Centovalli up to Lake Maggiore (Swiss side), embroidering its route along woods, pastures and mountain villages, in an enchanting environmental and landscape context.

The Vigezzina-Centovalli Alpine railway par excellence, a masterpiece of civil engineering immersed in nature, crosses picturesque landscapes along a route of 83 bridges and 31 tunnels. Completely immersed in nature, this route offers passengers of all ages the opportunity to observe breathtaking views from close up.

The trains of the Ferrovia Vigezzina Centovalli will take you from Domodossola to Locarno, or vice versa. If you leave Italy, you can buy tickets at the departure stations or at the stations of Druogno, Santa Maria Maggiore, Malesco and Re. If the latter are closed, you can buy tickets on board the train. It is also possible to buy tickets for the Ferrovia Vigezzina Centovalli at the Domodossola tourist office, located at the bus terminal. If you leave Switzerland, tickets can be purchased from the FART Ticket Office in Piazza Stazione in Locarno (depending on the opening days and times) or from the ticket machines located in the stations.

In autumn the warm tones of the leaves ignite the woods, the golden pastures illuminate the mountains, the undergrowth is enriched with fruits of the earth and scents that only autumn can release. In spring it is wonderful to enjoy the awakening of nature, in summer the freshness of the beautiful valleys and rivers, in winter everything becomes a postcard scenery, not to be missed.
