You will meet our local licensed tour guide in Stresa where a private boat will take you to Isola Bella, a small island that was converted from a simple fishing village to a wonderful villa with gardens.
After the visit you will be able to choose between Isola Madre or Isola dei Pescatori for lunch. Our guide will be ready to suggest you the best restaurants where you can taste typical food and experience Lake Maggiore cuisine.

If you wish to add a stunning attraction, we strongly suggest dedicating some of your afternoon to the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso, a church perched on a rocky cliff overlooking the lake. It is for sure the most picturesque spot of all region.
