One of the most resonant icons of the Leventina is certainly the legendary Tremola Road. For travellers passing through the Leventina, or even just as a day trip, from June to September it is possible to across the cobblestones of this fascinating historic road over the Gotthard Pass. Take your time, divert the route and take the opportunity to experience this road that brings with it an immense historical heritage. Because what matters is not the destination, but the way you get there! 

Giornico with its 7 churches is a very special place, in fact the centre of the village is crossed by the river Ticino which has created a small island inside it connected by beautiful Roman bridges. This village has a remarkable historical heritage and it is no coincidence that the Leventina Ethnographic Museum, which offers many activities and guided tours, is located here.

The Piumogna waterfall, one of the most spectacular in Ticino, will amaze you with its beauty! Would you like to visit the main attractions of the valley on your own and in complete tranquillity?
