The round trip from Arona to Domodossola and the Centovalli train to Locarno and the boat trip back to Arona takes a whole day. It's pleasant enough pastime but if you're pressed with time, don't bother. Actually, the mere train journey to Domodossola and back...More

A very pleasant slow ride through a spectacular valley. Make sure you get a train (more like a modern tram than a train) with the large picture windows. It costs a few Euros extra but is well worth it to see the tops of the...More

The beginning and the end of this train ride is underground, so it feels as in a subway. Going up from Locarno through the narrow Centovalli is the best part of the trip. Later, on the Italian side, the valley opens up and is less...More

This was a highlight of our tour of the Italian lakes and it didn't disappoint. The train was clean, comfortable and on time (quite a novelty for us Brits!) and the scenery was beautiful.
