    Beautiful, historic architecture - ambiently lit at night makes the area very welcoming and seductive.

    Walking straight up takes 20 minutes but taking longer you can enjoy the artwork of the individual chapels - the painting, the frescoes, the
    the scenery of the surrounding mountains - magic.

    I don't do usually do waterfalls. But after a strong recommendation from our hotel, I am glad I was flexible. This waterfall is quite simply stunning and mesmerising.
    The waterfall is the 2nd highest in Europe apparently. But I think you got a better sense of the size and perspective by standing at the bottom.
    If you are at the bottom when the waterfall is in full flow (11.30am-to1.30pm) you might need a rain jacket - I just sat there and watched the water pounding the rocks for half an hour.
    There is more parking at the top of the waterfall, along with a viewing platform of sorts, which gives great views back down the valley. This is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the area.

    Fantastic, scenic ride; friendly helpful staff; great food and bar up at top. Hiking down from the middle station is a good option too.

    This is the only one, amongst the many old gold mines in the area, which is open to the public, but the locals say it is neither the best, nor the only one accessible if you are willing to get your boots muddy and your hands dirty.
    It is certainly the easiest to reach, as it sits just off the main road and along the valley floor.
    Admission is not inexpensive: 7 euros (about 9.5 USD at current exchange rate) which includes a guided tour. Actually the guided tour is the only way to visit. The guide speaks only italian, and seems to be working on a schedule; little time to translate back into any other language. Groups can be as small as 4 people, but as large as fifteen-twenty (judging by the number of chairs); it all depends on your luck. The information provided is occasionally contradictory, especially if you ask the same question to the tour guide and to the people manning the ticket booth. The tour is short: about 45 minutes, which include viewing a video about the mining techniques. That means you only go some 500 meters into the mountain before it is time to walk out again. The walk is on flat smooth terrain. Photographs are not allowed; the reason given is that "this is a gold-mining operation". But the mine is shut down and all the equipment is quite completely dismantled and carted away, except for a few tools and artifacts (rusted) on display in lateral galleries.
    It can be a good activity on a rainy afternoon, if you want to avoid watching TV and are tired of playing card indoor.

    The lady care taker showed us and explained items on display. She also told us some interesting stories. Amazing lovely wonderful lady. In fact when we arrived at 11.30am, it was closed (open at 3.30pm) but we saw a phone number to call so we thought to try our luck but she came to open the door in minutes !!! That was super kind and wonderful of her. The museum should be proud to have her !!
    Visit could be less than 1 hour and around 30-40 mins walk from Macugnaga.

    The Lago di Morasco is a very big artifical lake created by the Morasco Dam for energy generation. The wall of the dam is extremely big. Even if there are several signs of the energy production the place is very nice. THe mountains are reflected in the water of the lake. It is the starting point for amazing hikings as Bettelmap Alp, Gries Alp or Lago dei Sabbioni.

    The Valle Vigezzo is a beatiful Valley with an entrance in Italy and another in Switzerland. It is a fantastic place both in summer than in Winter. In summer there is a lovery cycling/walking road in the woods that connects most of the villages. The same road in the winter months is a perfect crosscountry ring.
    From the valley it is possible with a cable-car to reach La Piana where downhill skiing is possible. In the valley there are many chaming villages.
    The altitude is not very high and many vegetation is present, so also in the very hot summer days it is possible to find a spot in the shadow.
