Islands, gardens and palaces
Famous for its colours and its scents, Lake Maggiore offers the visitor a scenario whose beauty can be enjoyed in a new and different way in every season; the famous islands of the Borromeo Gulf (Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori, Isola Madre, the islets of San Giovanni and Malghera), a tiny and picturesque archipelago, seem to be painted in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
The three main islands may be reached by means of an efficient public navigation service or by means of the characteristic "taxi boats": the Isola Bella with its Borromeo Palace (XVII century), surprises those arriving from the lake on account of its majestic and almost unreal baroque setting.
At Lake Maggiore, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, mountain chalets, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
