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.

Amazing tour, great guide who was very knowledgeable. Bus was clearly marked and easy to find and very modern. The boat tour was great as was the Palazzo Borromeo tour. There was just enough time to explore each island with the free time given. I would recommend the tour supplying some bottled water in the morning or on the boats as it gets very hot! Overall great tour and would definitely recommend this over any walking tours as well!
