One of the largest and most popular lakes in Italy, Lake Maggiore has long been a haven for artists and poets enchanted by its romantic charm.

The shoreline is dotted with palatial 19th Century villas and landscaped gardens, and with its proximity to the Swiss border, spectacular mountains provide the perfect backdrop. There are ferries connecting the resorts of Baveno and Stresa and the beautiful Borromean Islands, and buses also serve towns around the lake.

Lake Maggiore straddles the Italian and Swiss borders incorporating Italy’s Piedmont and Lombardy regions and Switzerland’s Ticino canton. You can explore the beauty of this region on foot or by ferry or, if you prefer something a little more challenging, the Santa Anna Gorge at the end of the Cannobino River is a popular place for white water rafting and kayaking. For sheer, unadulterated views, take a cable car from Stresa Lido to the top of Mottarone Mountain where you can enjoy some of the most breathtaking vistas in all of Italy.

Lake Maggiore Resorts

BAVENO

A peaceful and elegant resort on the west side of romantic Lake Maggiore, Baveno is a small lakeside town with a pretty promenade and lots of friendly bars where you can sit by the lake shore and enjoy a drink or an ice cream. It is particularly well known for its pretty pink granite quarries, natural mineral springs and stunning 19th Century villas and castles.

STRESA

South of Baveno lies the chic resort of Stresa, lined with shops, restaurants and cafes. With its many island attractions, woodland walks with panoramic lake views, beautiful gardens, churches, markets and culture, the town offers no shortage of things to do. The gardens of Isola Bella are a short ferry ride away, or you can enjoy dinner in one of the fine seafood restaurants on Isola dei Pescatori.

Recommended Excursions

Lake Maggiore is renowned for its three beautiful Borromean Islands, Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola Pescatori - definitely worth a boat trip!
