THE ALTO VERBANO AREA

The Hat Craft of Ghiffa Museum is not the only visiting experience that the Alto Verbano area is able to offer. A huge network dedicated to educational services, museum and itineraries into nature define a land rich of culture, emotions and beauty, between the Lake and the mountains. There are three main thematic areas: Nature, Tradition and Art. Fascinating routes full of history made for schools but also for private visitors. All with one common target: discover and engage.
