Brione Verzasca is home to an extensive bouldering area that’s especially popular in spring and autumn. The Verzasca is also particularly popular with families: it offers a Myth Trail, a huge natural marble run (BoBosco), barbecue spots and lovely bathing opportunities, i.e. everything you need to keep the family happy. A Verzasca classic is the Sentierone, which runs from Tenero through the valley to Sonogno. This wonderful trail can be completed on foot in several stages or (part of it) by mountain bike.
Sonogno, the last village of the Verzasca valley, is as enchanting as it is peaceful, with houses decorated with flowers, cobbled streets and the characteristic village square where people meet for a chat. Bars and restaurants serve traditional dishes, local specialities can be bought in the shops, and the Casa della lana (House of Wool) and museum bear witness to history and traditions, some of which continue to this day. Like the rest of the valley, Sonogno is a springboard for many outings. A valley that’s devoted to nature and where dreams become reality! Traditional yet innovative. For example, Corippo, the smallest municipality in Switzerland until 2020, is being transformed into an albergo diffuso – a “dispersed hotel” featuring existing houses in the village converted into hotel annexes.
The most convenient way to explore the Verzasca valley is by bus, which is included in the Ticino Ticket. This ‘hop-on hop-off’ service also benefits from marvellous views.
