|Valle Verzasca means Valley of Verzasca. Verzasca is the
River's name. It's a vally between 2000m mountains, and there are houses
made with granit stones and the beautiful colored river. The water is very cold
even in sommer and on many points there is strong current, so it's dengerous to swim.
This vally is around 25km long til the village Sonogno.
You can walk in the villages which keep old traditional style, or even go scuba diving and bungee jumping.
This dam is one of the highest in Europe (220m). You can feel how high it is if you go on it. And if it isn't enough, you can also try bungee jumping. The scene of jumping in the movie "007 Golden Eyes" was taken here.
The time doesn't flow away in this village... You might feel so. It is a small village up to the mountain. The houses and streets are made with stones and only stones.
The color of the river is unbelievable and so clear. It's so beautiful to look at. If you want to go to the water, you need to be careful because the water is so cold and has strong current. Besides it's slippery on the stones. Watch your steps!
