Stresa Italy lakefront

In this video I will take you on a beautiful walk along the lakefront of Stresa Lago Maggiore. We start our tour here, where private motorboats stop in high season to take you to visit the Borromean Islands.

Behind us we also have the Stresa pier where you can take the boat to visit the islands and other places on Lake Maggiore such as the Hermitage of Santa Caterina, Verbania and Baveno.

In front of us, we see Isola Bella. Until 1630 Isola Bella was only a rock inhabited by fishermen. Today, it is one of the most beautiful things to visit on Lake Maggiore for the magnificent Borromeo palace and its gardens, which have been included among the most beautiful gardens in the world by sites and specialized magazines.

Just turning our gaze, we also see the mother island. Isola Madre, already owned by the Borromeo family since about 1500, is now worth a visit, especially for its garden. Today, the one on Isola Madre is a unique botanical garden for rare plant essences worldwide that find an excellent home here on Lake Maggiore thanks to the mild and favorable temperatures. Behind the Isola Madre, along the coast, we can see Verbania and, more precisely, Pallanza and Suna’s areas.

Along with this lakefront stretch, we have the beach, the public parks, the private gardens of the hotels, and the bars that overlook the lake. On the left, we have the luxurious hotels for which Stresa is also famous. Here is the indication for Mottarone. From this road, it is in fact possible to reach the top of Mount Mottarone by car. From Mottarone, you have a magnificent view not only on Lake Maggiore but on a total of 7 lakes! From Mottarone, you can, in fact, see the

  1. Lago Maggiore
  2. Lago d’Orta
  3. Lago di Mergozzo
  4. Lago di Varese
  5. Lago di Monate
  6. Lago di Camabbio
  7. Lago Biandronno

We have now reached the end of this walk together. From here, it is, however, possible to continue on foot. In fact, after a stretch of sidewalk that runs along the road, you can get to another walk that runs along the lakefront and ends at the square, where it is possible to take the cable car to the Mottarone. This place is one of the most beautiful places to take a picture or take a selfie due to Isola Bella and Pescatori’s proximity.
