You cannot visit Lake Maggiore without dedicating one day to exploring the Borromean Islands by boat: a unique island hopping tour which you will love as the Palaces are magnificent and the botanical gardens unique.
This tour can be combined with private transfers from any location in Lombardy to make it the perfect day trip. Of course, the itinerary can be further personalised for a fully made-to-measure experience!
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.
During this full day, you will stop at 2 islands, so after the visit you will be able to choose to have lunch either at Isola Bella, 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.
After lunch, explore more of the second island you chose with the help of our local guide, before you end tour back in Stresa at about 1530.
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.
A 30 minutes private boat cruise will bring you and our guide will show you all secrets of this place and you can have a short walk to admire Lake Maggiore’s beauty.
Tour will end back in Stresa at about 1700.
