The Maldives of Switzerland

By Linda Tancs

At the heart of Switzerland’s Verzasca Valley you’ll find the emerald-green waters of the Verzasca River, enveloped by polished gorges and bathing pools. Locals like to compare its natural beauty to Maldives. One of the most iconic features across the river is Ponte dei Salti (jump bridge), a double-arched medieval stone pedestrian bridge in photogenic Lavertezzo. It’s a jumping point, literally, for divers as well as a good starting point for hikers. The best way to get to this Italian-speaking region in southern Switzerland is by car.
