    • We carefully follow all COVID-19 rules and restrictions. We suggest all participants to bring a safety mask and to wear it if current protocols require it.

    Pick-up will be at your hotel in Lake Como, Milan or other destinations.
    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 brought to 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 you will take a 30 minutes private boat cruise to Eremo di 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.

    Here the guide will show you all secrets of this place and you can have a short walk all along the Eremo to admire Lake Maggiore’s beauty.

    As an alternative, we suggest we couple Lake Maggiore to Lake Orta and in the early afternoon take a half hour drive to reach it and explore its beauty and tranquility

    At the end of the tour you will be transferred back to your accommodation.

    Please note: The visit at Eremo in the afternoon involves the ascent of approx 70 steps.
    If you do not feel up to it, we will replace it with a nice walk in Stresa.
