Tour description

The suggested itinerary through the towns of the Lower Mendrisiotto winds its way from Stabio to Vacallo, entering Switzerland via the Santa Margherita costums along the old Valmorea railway and ending in Italy at the summit of Mount Bisbino between the fortifications of the Cadorna Line. The route covers eight separate areas, whose «Highlights» and «Special Attractions» form a thematic thread, a mix of past and present, represented by the «ramina», the border fence between Switzerland and Italy, which at times divides the two countries, and at other times unites them.
