The Verzasca Valley is in the Ticino – the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland and south of the Alps. The Verzasca river flows through the valley passing Lavertezzo with its famous double-arched bridge. Over millions of years, the river has carved its way through the rock, leaving it smooth and polished. The water is crystal clear, up to 10 metres deep and very cold, even in the summer. With its strong currents the Verzasca river can be dangerous.
