LAKE MAGGIORE – Day Tour by Boat and Train

LAKE MAGGIORE – Day Tour by Boat and Train 2000 1333 TrekMI

A memorable tour to discover the most famous highlights of Lake Maggiore, Italy’s second biggest lake. From Milan we catch a train to Stresa (1h), our gate to the enchanting gulf of the Borromean Islands. A group of three gorgeous tiny island – Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori – named after the arisctocratic Borromean family who bought the land and transformed two of them into luxury residences. Located just across from little Stresa the three islands can be reached with a short ferry ride. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, the gulf of the Borromean islands and cute little Stresa were a favourite stop during the “grand tour” of Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries. A stroll on the waterfront to admire the elegant Grand Hotels lined up along the coastline will take you back in time to that fascinating Old World.
