Domodossola – la Dolce Vita with BLS
There are many ways to enjoy la Dolce Vita in the Piedmont
If you love Italian cuisine, you are likely to enjoy antipasti and original grissini torinesi, possibly with a glass of red wine and preferably followed by a dessert of torrone alla nocciola. So how about an excursion to the Piedmont?
Thanks to the great connections provided by BLS via the Lötschberg and Simplon tunnels, rail passengers can travel in comfort directly to Domodossola. Perfect for dinner at one of the provincial capital’s restaurants. And the journey there – through the wonderful expanse of Rhonetal and the nearly 20-kilometre-long Simplon Tunnel, and a stretch on the Italian side past burbling streams amidst pristine nature – is already guaranteed to be a fascinating experience.
Alongside its great food and typical Italianità, the Piedmont also offers plenty of variety and great excursions starting at Domodossola. Treat yourself today – the Dolce Vita is closer than you think!
