30 Reviews

  • Location: Milan, Italy
  • Duration: 9 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2872LAKEMAGGIORE
Explore scenic Lake Maggiore in Italy's beautiful Lake District on a day trip from Milan. The fashionable lakeside town of Stresa is an approximate 1.5-hour drive from Milan and is surrounded by majestic snowcapped mountains. After spending some free time in Stresa, shopping or simply relaxing and enjoying the stunning scenery, you'll take a two-hour panoramic boat cruise on Lake Maggiore, visiting the Borromean Islands – Isola Madre, Isola dei Pescatori and Isola Bella.
Lake Maggiore, also known as Lake Verbano, is the second-largest lake in Italy and is surrounded by picturesque villages. As you arrive in the lakeside town of Stresa, you will have free time to explore this quiet village, have a bite to eat or browse shops before heading out on the water on your boat cruise.

On board the boat, you can admire the splendid lakeside villas and lush gardens; the mild Mediterranean climate ensures that an abundance of exotic and rare plants thrive year-round. Sit back and relax as you cruise around the Borromean Islands. Pass by Isola Madre before heading to Isola dei Pescatori, where you will dock and enjoy free time to explore, hit the shops or enjoy a light lunch.

Next, it’s back on board the boat for a stop on the third island, Isola Bella, where you can visit the Borromean Palace and gardens or discover the many shops, boutiques and cafés housed in historic buildings. Finally, you will rejoin the boat and cruise back to Stresa for your return Milan.

This was a fun trip. We would have liked to spend a little more time at the Boromeyo palace. There is a lot to see.
