Chugging along through a magical autumn


The foliage train through the nature and tastes of Italy and Switzerland


Nature that assumes hues of yellow, orange and red.

As the train winds its way slowly through the forests.

With dishes to tantalize the taste buds.


The railway is the Ferrovia Vigezzina-Centovalli, the international narrow-gauge railway that links Domodossola with Locarno. A route of 52 kilometers between Italy and Switzerland on the small blue and white trains meanders through the Vigezzo Valley and the ‘Centovalli’ region, offering one of the finest panoramas in Italy between Piedmont and the Canton of Ticino.


The foliage train – the poetic metamorphosis of the landscape in all its autumn glory – is an enchanting journey between delightful spots and unmistakable atmospheres.

A gluttonous fairytale for children and adults alike, offering the chance to taste typical delicacies of this area nestled between lakes and mountains – from salami and cold meats to chocolate, from wine to beer – at participating facilities.



Tickets for the foliage train can be used between 16 October and 19 November 2017 and can be purchased online on the website www.vigezzinacentovalli.com.
