Centovalli Railways

The Centovalli Railway was originally planned to connect Locarno in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland with Domodossola in the very north of Italy. The line's opening was delayed considerably owing to the First World War, but construction was resumed almost immediately afterwards and the first services began in 1923.

The railway's name means "One Hundred Valleys", which is taken from the many valleys that the line crosses and passes through on its route. The line's passenger numbers dwindled following the Second World War, but it has remained open continually, having now become a much-loved tourist attraction.

Stresa and Lake Maggiore
4 stars
“On route to Stresa, the overnight stop in Colmar was great. Hotel was good and old Colmar a beautiful medieval town. Stresa was a nice location on the lake. The hotel in Stresa was OK but groups were treated a bit like second class guests, for instance, they had to sit in their specified area in the restaurant and not permitted to dine individually on the terrace, even at breakfast. The rooms tended to be at the side or back of the hotel but comfortable. Organised excursions out were good. The accompanying GRJ rep, Bob Whitworth, was really good. He was well organised, his administration efficient, and he kept the group well informed about each days activity. The Sherpa luggage service was also efficient but the paperwork was a bit onerous. The journey back to UK went according to plan but the evening local delicacy meal at the overnight stop in Dijon was not to everyone’s liking. However, my plate was soon empty. Overall, an enjoyable sojourn in Italy.
