Full day.



The Centovalley Train or Lake Maggiore Express is a day's round trip by narrow gauge train and ferry.


Departing Stresa on the normal train you travel as far as Domodossola where you change to the quaint narrow gauge "Centovalley" train - one of Switzerland/Italy's most scenic journeys. The Lake Maggiore Express winds it's way slowly up to reach the many bridges and viaducts that span the valleys. There are spectacular views from the train itself and you can even stop off for a short time in one of the many rustic villages that the train passes through.


The Centovalley Train takes you to Locarno which is in Switzerland at the northern tip of Lake Maggiore. The return journey is made in the late afternoon by ferry back to Stresa, relaxing on the outside deck as you cruise between the many lakeside towns.



  • Round trip as above with the opportunity to leave from several departure points around the lake.

Services Available

  • Group ticket for the trains/boat

  • Guide

  • Lunch in Locarno


It is possible to just do the Centovalley Train from Domodossola to Locarno (or vice versa), one way or return. With this option there is the opportunity to stop for lunch in one of the picturesque villages en route.


If you wish to do so you can use your own coach to go as far as Domodossola to catch the “Centovalley Train”. Please note that passports are needed for crossing the border into Switzerland.
