    Lago Maggiore to Aprica

    July 10, 2016 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    The area around the lake is quaint and there are a couple of small island in the lake. On one of the small island is Rocca d'Angera, a medieval fortified stronghold.

    We stopped in Laveno to take the cable car to view Lago Maggiore from 1100m above. The cars are tiny and only hold a maximum of 2 people ... Oh and most of them are open 😊

    We then travelled back into Switzerland to Logano before once again crossing back into Italy. Fortunately the border crossings are easy... No getting into and out of the car at each one. Just simply drive through.

    We passed many old villages on the mountains on both sides of the road coming up to Aprica. More narrow winding roads and lots of tunnels. Needless to say, each and every one had a huge church.
