We are travelling from Annecy in France via Chamonix/ Mont Blanc - up through Martigny ans Sion.?
We are considering a detour down and up the Great St. Bernards Pass- Is this worth it.
From Sion we are travelling down the Simplon Pass and then down to the bottom od the lake and up to Ascona.
  • This trip is over three days- would you include St. Bernards pass
  • is there anything special we should look out for on the trip from Annecy to Sion.
  • What can you recommend with the 1 Full day we have in Ascona on lake maggiore.
Thank you

Hi roblan,

I can't answer all you questions, but as for Annecy - Sion: you can consider a trip to the Lac d' Emosson. It is listed amongst the Wallis day trips. Be sure to travel by mountain railway rather than by bus, as described.
