29 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 the first of four tours I took with this company and it was a great send off. Our buide, Franco, was exceptional and very enthusiastic. I wasn't sure what to expect, but he helped make the trip very enjoyable and informative. We were fortunately a small group of 6 people (the minimum needed for the tour), so I think that really helped make it a better quality experience. While the day was overcast, there was a lot to see and learn about the ancient families who still own homes on the lake. It is the kind of tour that one could do on one's own, which is usually what I like to do, but I thought this was a very efficient way to cover a lot of ground and see all the highlights in one day without sacrificing the pleasure of enjoying the lake and the scenery. While this tour is not as popular as Lake Como (it doesn't run every day), I highly recommend it if you have the time. You won't be disappointed and you may want to go back on your own another time.
