On reaching Odro, visit the small museum to learn how the land was farmed in past centuries, including how they used to gather the wild hay in the Verzasca valley. Further on is the huge Alpe Bardughè mountain plain with fantastic panoramic views over Lake Maggiore and a charming collection of rustic buildings clinging to the sides of Pizzo Vogorno. What better way to leave your cares behind than to rest here a while? If you wish, you can practice your favourite yoga poses here or simply enjoy a picnic with some local produce. It only takes about 2 - 2.5 hours to descend to the bottom of the valley, so you have plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings. On reaching Vogorno, you might wish to visit Lavertezzo (using public transport), where both the Parish Church and the famous Ponte dei Salti bridge are well worth seeing. This elegant bridge is a Romanesque structure. It sits above the clear waters of the Verzasca river to form the most popular attraction in the valley. The whole area is of national importance: a series of quaint villages, each seemingly more beautiful than the last, with their own special atmosphere, yet all sharing the same, unmistakable character of the Verzasca Valley. For example, if architecture is your thing, well worth a visit in Brione Verzasca are the 13th century Parish Church of Santa Maria Assunta and the 18th century Castello Marcacci. Tip: check the local calendar of events, as the castle is often used for various events that prove very popular with the locals.
