Lake Maggiore



Framed by soaring Alpine peaks, Lake Maggiore sweeps majestically from northern Italy into southern Switzerland. Stresa and Pallanza, on the Italian western shore are recognised as two of the most beautiful towns on the lake, with lush gardens and fine old villas. From both towns you can take a steamer to visit the famous formal gardens on the Borromeo islands or travel north to Ascona.
