on the northern shore of Lake Maggiore, but in Switzerland                      Photos by Hetty

June 2013

We flew from Birmingham to Zurich, then caught a train to Locarno, on Lake Maggiore, one of the Italian lakes that is partly in Switzerland. We had lots of sunshine, it was very hot, and the scenery was wonderful.

We stayed for 2 weeks in a self-catering apartment with lovely views from the balcony

Day 1
