INTRA – CANNERO RIVERA – SAN BARTOLOMEO
LAKE MAGGIORE: VIA DELLE GENTI
The “Via delle Genti” from Verbania Intra to the Swiss border was the ancient connecting road between the villages of Verbano and Switzerland.
The Via continued into Switzerland along the villages of Lake Maggiore up to Locarno and then to the Magadino Plain, where it joined the road that climbed up to the San Gottardo Pass.
The stretch from Verbania to the State Border can be traveled in two pleasant stages all year round, except when snowfall is forecast.
It is an itinerary that takes place halfway up the mountainside, always with a beautiful view of Lake Maggiore, and that allows passing through small villages and the Sacro Monte di Ghiffa Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, finally reaching the beautiful lakeside villages of Cannero and Cannobio.
