After the great success of the Foliage® train, the Vigezzina-Centovalli railway is preparing for its winter "change of clothes": the landscapes that its trains cross every day will give travelers new glimpses of some of Italy and Switzerland.

Trains with a long history behind them – the celebrations for the centenary which will fall on November 25th, 2023 will be officially presented on November 25th – connect Switzerland to Italy every day, a journey that will continue even during the skiing season.

From the beginning of December, the blue and white trains of the Vigezzina-Centovalli railway will become the ideal means for reaching some of the most popular Christmas events in this portion of land between Lake Maggiore and the Piemonte Alps: from the Santa Maria Maggiore Christmas Street Market, among the largest in Europe, to the Locarno on Ice event and to the Domodossola street markets.
Tickets can be purchased from Tuesday November 22nd at www.vigezzinacentovalli.com
