The motorcycle is an excellent way to discover the region and get to know it better. The life at the lake is very relaxed and the palm trees immediately give the feeling of south and holidays. When you leave the lake, a completely different side of Ticino opens up. Suddenly you are in the middle of nature and in front of high mountains. The valleys around Lake Maggiore keep secrets and are transformed into a fairytale world by the traditional rustici (stone houses), waterfalls, green meadows and colourful forests. If you make a trip to the valley it includes a visit to the Grotto, where local specialities made from regional products are served.
