    The old roads to the Simplon Pass went through the village, now there are modern roads. Today the railway station is on the line from Brig in Switzerland to Milan Italy. At the front of the rail station there is a bus station. I visited Domodossola by trains from Zermatt on a day trip. Two hours there and two hours back. This may sound a long time but the scenery from the train is stunning.
