Hi There, The Verzasca Dam has been on my 'Bungee Jump' list for some years now. I have plans to take a 3 nights break in Milan, Italy and would like to do the Bungee Jump. Can someone please advise how to get from Milan Malpensa Airport to the Verzasca Dam? I will arriving at the Milan airport at 10:30am on a Sunday and would like to make for the afternoon Jump on the same day. Please note I will be travelling alone and not one for hiring a car and driving. Is train travel an option and how do I work out the most efficient way of getting there and returning to Milan. Considering staying overnight at Locarno. Thanks and Regards TRS007
