Leventina

Whoever placed the St. Gotthard in the heart of Europe gave the people of the Leventina valley a priceless gift: three enchanted worlds. Take your time when visiting the Upper, Middle and Lower Valley and be guided by the strange effect of time in this region. Strange, because as you travel up the valley from the south you climb 800 metres and go from spring to mid-winter in just over half an hour. These variations in climate influence the vegetation which is universally lush but varies enormously, ranging from palm trees and romantic vineyards to thick pine forests. It isn’t surprising therefore that the choice of activities and events on offer for tourists is kaleidoscopic.

 

Enjoy 650 kilometres of forest hiking paths on foot, on mountain bike or on horseback; take some of the steepest funiculars and most modern cableways in the world to reach vast networks of ski runs, comfortable refuge huts, magnificent lakes and alpine pastures. Stop to admire the breathtaking views and discover the ancient customs and history of the valley by paying a visit to local museums and some splendid examples of Romanesque architecture. A further fascinating aspect of the region is the existence, side by side, of ancient history and the futuristic technology currently being used to build the longest railway tunnel in the world.

 

Here there is a hunger for the future, a desire for innovation, but at the same time, an ever increasing appetite for a return to the values of traditional cuisine where local products such as cheeses, wine, pork products, mushrooms and chestnuts acquire gourmet status. Nature and sport. History and culture. Fine cuisine and local products. Three different worlds but only one philosophy……. genuine and traditional hospitality!
