Lake Maggiore enjoys an efficient network of connections either towards the Po lowlands, and the Central European Countries. To the Sempione road and the coastal connection with Switzerland along the northwestern shore, it was added the Arona-Domodossola railway (1905) and the Sempione tunnel (1906). From Arona to Sesto Calende, in the southern zone, the railway lines transit from Milan, Genoa, Turin. The high way "Laghi A8" quickly joins the lake to Milan and to Arona where you can arrive also by means of state road 32, while the whole western shore up to Stresa is profiled by the main road 33 from Sempione. In the same way, either Stresa or Laveno are connected via road by Trenitalia rail with Milan, Genoa, Turin and Switzerland. From Laveno leaving for Milan also the LeNord railways line, while the highway of the "Trafori" (Tunnels) A26 connects the western shore of the lake with Alessandria, with the Liguria and with the Milano-Torino. Locarno in the Swiss territory, is in turn connected to the Central Europe by rail and roads through the Gottardo mountain-passes of San Bernardo and Sempione.
