    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.

    At the end of the tour you will be transferred back to Stresa where our driver will be there to take you to your accomodation.

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