Domodossola - just a train ride away

Just an hour's train ride from Sierre and you're in Italy and the beautiful historic town of Domodossola. The old town dates back to the C14th and wandering around you'll definitley come into the Piazza Mercato - an irregular shaped square surrounded by elegant medieval town houses with beautiful balconies and loggias.

Wander the medieval street and churches
Domodossola has long been a hub town which became more important in the early 1800's when Napolean finished the building of the road across the Simplon pass, one hundred year's later the railway tunnel was opened allowing even easier connections with Switzerland.

It's a great day out - topped off with a coffee and a delicious Italian ice-cream at 1/3 of the price.  PK
