Text of the video:

Hi everybody, we are in Bardolino on Lake Garda. This beautiful town is undoubtedly one of my favorites among those on Lake Garda.

What do I like about Bardolino? The beautiful walk along the lakeside, the center with the shops, and the wide beach.

I also love to admire the sunset: the sun that gradually hides behind the mountains, the beautiful sky colors, and the lights of Bardolino reflecting on the lake.

This is why I invite you to watch this video in its half where you see the sunset and in the final part where you see the lights of Bardolino reflected in the lake water.

The big wine barrel in front of us is the giant wine barrel with the words “I love Bardolino”. You also saw it at the beginning of the video.

Why a wine barrel?

Have you ever heard about the Bardolino wine?

Here’s why!

You can then go inside the barrel and get a unique memory picture with Lake Garda in the background.

Let’s continue our walk now!

You can come here to Bardolino for several reasons: to relax, for a good aperitif or for a walk, but Bardolino can also be your starting point to reach other beautiful places on Lake Garda by boat.

Continuing the walk in this direction you arrive at the beach.

Now let’s enjoy quietly the sunset and our evening walk.

1. The barrel symbol of Bardolino on the lakefront

The barrel is a beautiful attraction for all visitors to Bardolino. You can find it on the lakefront not far from the Bardolino Ferris wheel. You can go inside the barrel and take a nice souvenir photo.

What makes the picture in the barrel particularly beautiful is in addition to its shape and the inscription of the place, the fact that the opening is made in the shape of a heart. In this way, you can be immortalized inside the barrel in the shape of a heart with Lake Garda as a background.

Watch the following video and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven’t already! Click here to subscribe!

For a nice photo, it’s best to have your photo taken in the morning. The big problem with where this barrel has been placed is that it has the light behind it for most of the day making it difficult to get a perfect shot.

2. Lakefront Bardolino Lake Garda

We offer you a virtual walk along the lakefront in Bardolino Gardasee in the summer. We see the lakefront and the most characteristic places of this town on Lake Garda.

As you can see, the lakeside walking way is nice thanks to the wooden planks placed along the way and the colorful flowers.

View of Bardolino Lake Garda

From the barrel of Bardolino, we followed the lakefront and now we are slightly outside the center of this locality. From here you can clearly see the profile of this city and the pleasant comings and goings of tourist boats.

The following video from the “Tripilare Moments” series shows you a beautiful view of Bardolino and its marina. We also observe the boat that sails on the lake and arrives at its destination.

Of course, a boat that comes and a boat that goes;). Here in the following video (Bardolino Gardasee 2020 Bardolino Lago di Garda boat) the departure of the boat.

Sunset

Here in Bardolino, we admire a beautiful sunset over the lake with a fountain that takes water directly from Lake Garda and adds beauty to this scenery.

We are in the spring of 2021, and here in Bardolino, we no longer see the Ferris wheel that characterized this magnificent location on Lake Garda in recent seasons. On the other hand, we have this fountain directly on the lake. Watch the following video!

3. The historic center of Bardolino

The historic center is very interesting to explore for various reasons. The center of Bardolino is full of shops, restaurants, historic buildings and also has surprisingly unique corners.

4. Bardolino beach

Bardolino is a fairly privileged location on Lake Garda as it has a beautiful beach. Furthermore, the beach is slightly moved from the center but easily reachable on foot.

In fact, we keep our direction walking along the lakefront of Bardolino and in a few minutes, we arrive at the beach.

5. Sunset in Bardolino Lake Garda

Watching the sunset in Bardolino is definitely one of the things to do before dinner. Relaxing on a bench watching the sun go down and then admiring the colors of the horizon is very beautiful.

Watch the following video with accelerated speed shooting “Sonnenuntergang Bardolino Gardasee 2020 Lago di Garda Bardolino”.

Returning to the center we also have the opportunity to admire the arrival of the boat with the background of the sky-colored by the sunset.

6. Ferris wheel

The Ferris wheel quickly became a Bardolino must. It is particularly beautiful and fascinating in the evening when it lights up with 100 colors.

Lake Maggiore Cannero Riviera Italy – Hi Everybody! This is a beautiful walking tour in Cannero Riviera Italy.

Castles of Cannero

Hi Everybody, we had a nice walk in Cannero Riviera in winter and we also planned to visit Cannobio. We could have been gone there by car because it takes only about 10 minutes but there is another option: the boat.

From the Imbarcadero of Cannero Riviera, you can take the boat for Cannobio. It’s true that in this way you spend more but it’s also true that you have beautiful views. From Cannero Riviera to Cannobio the boat went directly passing very close to the Castles of Cannero. Between the Lake Maggiore coast and the Castles of Cannero.

Instead, on the way back, the boat from Cannobio went first to Luino, on the other side of the lake, to go back then to Cannero Riviera. In this way, we admired better this part of Lake Maggiore and see the Castles of Cannero from another viewpoint.

Watch the following video!

Castles of Cannero Lake Maggiore Italy from the boat in winter

Text of the Video

Hi Everybody! We are on the Lake Maggiore. In this video, we see the Castles of Cannero from the boat. We see them first from the boat while sailing from Cannero Riviera to Cannobio.

These 2 villages are on the same side of Lake Maggiore, and therefore navigation is enjoyable as it allows us to admire this beautiful coast from the boat. We also pass very close to the Castles of Cannero and fully grasp their charm.

Now we are on the boat that goes from Luino to Cannero Riviera. Luino is on the opposite shore of Lake Maggiore from Cannero Riviera. This allows us to cross the entire lake going from one bank to another.

The crossing gives us a further away view of the Castles of Cannero, but it gives us beautiful images of this part of Lake Maggiore. We are very close to the border with Switzerland; in fact, Lake Maggiore also goes beyond the Swiss border.

We have now come to the end of this video. I greet you and see you in the following video! Like and subscribe. Bye!

Cannobio

Hi Everybody, in the recent videos, we were on the boat at Lake Maggiore. We passed close to the Castles of Cannero and admired the beauty of Lake Maggiore. If you watched our videos, you know that our destination was Cannobio. In this video, we finally get to Cannobio during our recent adventure at Lake Maggiore at the beginning of December. The weather was beautiful with sunshine. That’s true that on the boat, I got frozen to record this video, but in Cannero Riviera we had just had a relaxing walk on a pretty warm day of December. Of course, it was not hot because we are in December, but it was pleasing.

So we decided to have lunch in the main Cannobio square, you can see that it is in front of the lake. We really enjoyed the sun and so we said: let’s have lunch outside. The only problem was that the restaurant took a lot of time to bring us our food. What is the problem? In Cannero, the sun goes down in the early afternoon, especially because the mountain is very close to the town and the mountains hide the sun gradually. The result? At 2 pm, the restaurant was all in the shade and soon after all the other part of the square. After a while, we were all frozen, also those more living of the cold (not me). We really enjoyed our time spent at Cannobio and we would like to go back also tomorrow. Still, if you can go to Cannobio in the morning, you have more time to eat outside when it’s sunny, also when the people in the restaurant take more time to bring you your order!.

Lake Maggiore Italy things to do: visit Cannobio!

Because without the sun it was cold, soon after lunch (after all it was 3 pm), we took the boat to come back to Cannero Riviera. Before getting to Cannero Riviera, the boat brought us to the other side of Lake Maggiore and stopped at Luino. On the other side of the lake, it was still sunny because the sun could still reach the town. From Luino to Cannero Riviera, I could enjoy the lake view, the Castles of Cannero, and a romantic sunset! You can see the pictures here in the following gallery.

Baveno Lake Maggiore in Winter what to do?

Baveno is a perfect place to visit in Spring and Summer but it’s also a good idea in winter. What can I do in Baveno in Winter? Let’s watch the following video to find a very good idea for a special day!

Video text:

Hi everybody, we are in Baveno on Lake Maggiore in winter. Let’s enjoy this relaxing walk. Our final destination is Fisherman Island or Isola Pescatori. In front of us is the famous Hotel Dino. Very famous hotel here on the lake.

And then in front of us is Pallanza, where we see the characteristic bell tower of the church. Then we have the Isola Madre or Mother Island and then Laveno, where you can take the cable car to get to the top of the Sasso del Ferro. And here on the other side, we have the other 2 islands.

The Beautiful Island and the Fisherman Island. And as we said, here the famous Dino hotel. Let’s continue our walk!

This is very cute. Because we can see all these flowers. And then we always have a view of the 2 islands. Now they can be seen in the distance. The Beautiful Island and the Fisherman Island.

Here in Baveno you can walk quietly. And in front of us … … we also have the Imbarcadero or landing stage. Where you can take the boat. For the Islands. Or for Pallanza for example.

It is now December and therefore everything is very quiet. Few people around. But during the summer there are many people. Here we are at the Imbarcadero or landing stage right in front of us.

Where we can take the boat for, in our case, the Fisherman Island or Isola Pescatori. Going to the Fisherman Island or Isola Pescatori is a good idea even in winter because there are so many good restaurants.

We are now on the boat because we’re having lunch at the Isola Pescatori! We can now see the Fisherman Island or Isola Pescatori! We’re now arrived!

See you in the following video! Bye!

Feriolo

Feriolo is a small town on Lake Maggiore and remains under the municipality of Baveno. Feriolo is one of the most characteristic villages of Lake Maggiore and has its own unmistakable profile.

If you don’t have much time to dedicate to this location, I recommend that you park your car in the parking lot that you find right on the main road.

Baveno Feriolo Lake Maggiore images tripilare

From here with a few steps, you can reach the gazebo which offers you a beautiful view of Feriolo di Baveno.

I personally love to stop and admire Feriolo both during the day and in the evening. Feriolo is really beautiful in the evening. In fact, the moment of the day I prefer to admire Feriolo is in the evening, when the lights of the town are reflected on the lake and the town takes on a magical atmosphere.

Baveno Feriolo Lake Maggiore images tripilare

What to do in Feriolo?

Here are the main things to do in Feriolo:

  1. See the country from a gazebo and take a nice selfie here
  2. Take a nice walk around the lakefront
  3. In the summer, relax and sunbathe on the beach: Feriolo, for being such a small town on Lake Maggiore, is full of beaches. In particular we have one in front of the town center when the lake level is not too high and a wide beach at the bottom, after the town.
  4. Try the restaurants and choose your favorite restaurant. Did you know there’s a restaurant on a boat here?

Feriolo in winter

Feriolo in winter is an extremely quiet place, even too quiet. If you want to take a nice walk, Feriolo is an excellent idea, but on the lakefront, it is easy to find everything closed. If you want to find some open bars you have to head towards the main road. At this point, if you want to eat or have breakfast, better choose Baveno, Verbania, or the Fisherman Island.

Enjoy this beautiful walk in Feriolo in winter, in the following video we are in the first days of December.

In the following series of videos, I take you on a virtual walk along the Verbania lakefront From Pallanza to Suna.

Video 1 Verbania Pallanza

Hello everyone! We are in Pallanza Verbania on Lake Maggiore. In front of us, we see Villa Giulia. Villa Giulia was built in 1847 by Bernardino Branca, the inventor of Fernet. It was his son who dedicated the villa to his wife Giulia. This is why it is called Villa Giulia.

In front of us is the Milano restaurant and behind the bell tower of the church of San Leonardo. The statue placed on the column of the port acts as a hydrometer and shows the levels of the historic floods of Lake Maggiore.

Here is the stump of the great centuries-old tree to which many Pallanzesi was particularly fond of, felled by the storm that occurred precisely on the date shown on the plate. The small island that is only a few tens of meters from the shore of Pallanza is the Isolino di San Giovanni. The islet of San Giovanni is not as famous as the other Borromean Islands but it always has its charm.

The history of the Isolino di San Giovanni is linked to the famous conductor Arturo Toscanini, who chose it as a place to stay in peace, in the company only of a close circle of friends. We continue our walk admiring the beautiful flowering trees and the romantic panorama of Lake Maggiore.

In Pallanza Lago Maggiore there is still a lot to see… our walk continues in the next video!

Villa Giulia Pallanza

The name of Villa Giulia was given by the old owner Giuseppe Branca (the producer of the famous Amaro Fernet Branca) in honor of his wife Giulia in 1880. After several changes of ownership, the Villa Giulia is now owned by the Municipality of Verbania which, in addition to its park is open to the public and uses it to organize exhibitions and shows.

In the park, you can walk along gravel paths surrounded by majestic trees of different types and beautiful flowers of various colors. There are also benches where you can sit and admire the splendid views of the lake.

Villa Giulia overlooks the part of the lake that forms the Borromeo Gulf where there are four islands with palaces of the Borromeo family and the whole forms an unforgettable spectacle. In the garden, there is also a bar where you can sip a drink immersed in an environment reminiscent of fairy tales.

Inside the beautiful Villa Giulia, events and shows are often organized, open to the public, which are very pleasant and interesting. Yes, Villa Giulia with its garden is certainly a pearl of Verbania Pallanza and Lake Maggiore.

Hello, here we are in Verbania Pallanza on Lake Maggiore. Pallanza is a pleasant and touristic place. In the summer, residents and tourists love to enjoy the lakefront by walking or enjoying something in one of the bars and restaurants.

In moments of calm like this, however, there are those who take the opportunity to enjoy Pallanza in peace. There are those who sing carefree and example. Who reserves a private body of water.

Our walk along the lakefront of Pallanza continues in another video… Follow us!

After a short break in this very special corner, we can continue our walk along the Verbania lakeside. In the previous videos from Pallanza, we have now arrived in Suna.

Just below us, we are now seeing the swimming pool beach, the lake pool, and the free beach. This beach is certainly perfect in summer when it is possible to lie down to sunbathe and swim but it has its beauty in every season. It is in fact beautiful and relaxing just to sit on the steps to admire the view … and the nice friends who come to visit you.

Continuing our journey we see some very characteristic corners of the Verbania lakeside, up to the old Suna pier, where we now find a bar that is clearly called the Imbarcadero bar. Going beyond the dock bar we enter the heart of the Suna lakefront but see in the next video!

2. Isola Madre or Mother Island

Isola Madre, already owned by the Borromeo family from around 1500, is now worth a visit, especially for its garden. Today that of Isola Madre is a unique botanical garden for rare plant essences from all over the world.

In spring-summer, you can appreciate the beauty of the gardens of Isola Madre already from the boat. The vegetation that covers it is always something beautiful to admire.

It is important to know that access to Isola Madre is only possible with the purchase of the ticket. In fact, when you get off the boat you will immediately find the entrance gate.

This is in fact a substantial difference compared to other Borromean Islands such as Isola Bella, in which there is the palace and gardens to be visited with an entrance ticket but also a free area with stalls, bars, and restaurants.

8. Stresa

Stresa Italy – Stresa is a gorgeous town on Lake Maggiore. It has beautiful gardens, luxury hotels and a beautiful view of the Borromean Islands.

Stresa can be a good place to relax drinking your cocktail and enjoying the lake view but in Stresa and in nearby, there is also a lot to visit. Let’s see together the Top 5 places you should visit. See also Stresa Italy Lake Maggiore Top 5 things to do

9. Hermitage of Santa Caterina

A very characteristic place of Lake Maggiore is the Hermitage of Santa Caterina. This Hermitage which seems to be set in the rock is located not far from Laveno. To visit the hermitage it is only necessary to pay the cost of the boat because the entrance is usually included in the boat ticket.

Even from Verbania Pallanza, it is possible to reach the Hermitage by boat. From Pallanza take the boat, get off at Stresa and with the same ticket purchased in Pallanza take the boat to the Hermitage. Since you have to change the boat in Stresa, this is an excellent opportunity to take a walk along the lakeside of this luxuriant location. In fact, when you arrive in Stresa from Pallanza you are not obliged to take the next boat to the Hermitage.

If you go in the afternoon, however, I advise you to carefully consider the timetables as there are fewer boats.

Taking the boat to the Eremo da Pallanza, for about 12-13 euros per person, take a beautiful panoramic tour of Lake Maggiore. Steps for Isola Madre, for Baveno, see Isola Pescatori, Isola Bella and Stresa from the lake.

10. Mottarone

Mount Mottarone is unique! From the top of Mottarone you can have an amazing view of 7 lakes:

  1. Lake Maggiore
  2. Lake Orta
  3. Lake Mergozzo
  4. Lake Varese
  5. Lake Monate
  6. Lake Camabbio
  7. Lake Biandronno

History and curiosity about The Leaning Tower of Pisa Italy, the Cathedral of Pisa, and Piazza Dei Miracoli Pisa.

History and curiosity about The Leaning Tower of Pisa Italy, the Cathedral of Pisa, and Piazza Dei Miracoli Pisa. Pisa is a nice city but what makes it unique in the world is its leaning tower. Pisa in fact is very famous for its square and especially for its leaning tower. Everybody visiting Pisa wants to take the picture in front of this special tower and pretend to sustain it with his hand.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is really unique! Do you want to know more about this tower? Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning? Is it a problem? What keeps the leaning tower of Pisa from falling?

Walking tour Pisa Piazza dei Miracoli and History

First of all, we begin to understand how the Piazza Dei Miracoli was born and how it has evolved over time. For example, could you tell which is the oldest monument in the square? Let’s find out together with the following video!

Text of the video:

Hi everybody, in this video we are in Pisa in Tuscany Italy.

We are now entering the famous Piazza Dei Miracoli in Pisa where we find the city’s most important monuments.

It’s early in the morning, and the souvenir stalls are opening now.

This square is truly unique, and now that it is not yet too crowded with tourists, we can fully admire its beauty.

People from all over the world come to visit this square and its monuments.

Could you tell which is the oldest monument in the whole square?

It is the cathedral, whose construction began in 1064 and ended in 1150.

Construction of the baptistery began in 1152, the walls in 1154, and the Tower in 1173.

But it took centuries to complete the construction of the Tower of Pisa.

In fact, in 1278, when the construction of the Camposanto began, the tower of Pisa was still under construction.

The Tower of Pisa, also due to soil subsidence problems, was completed only in the middle of the following century, but the evolution of the Piazza Dei Miracoli continued until 1863.

When you enter what do you feel? Immediately feel the slope from the base. It’s true, look!

So walking through this square, we can imagine its transformation over time and all the illustrious people of history who have been right here where we are now.

Our tour is ending so I greet you and see you in the next video. Bye!

The leaning tower of Pisa

The leaning tower is composed of a cylindrical stone body surrounded by open galleries with arcades and pillars resting on a bottom shaft, with the bell on top.

Was the leaning tower of Pisa a mistake?

When the leaning tower of Pisa was built, in 1173 nobody made any mistake. Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning? However, after a while, the tower had caught the attention of several artists for its inclination.

Why is the leaning tower of Pisa leaning?

It was discovered that the ground beneath the tower was essentially made of sand and shortly after the inauguration it started to tilt.

This caused an inclination of the tower which is currently inclined by 3.9 degrees.

pisa leaning tower leaning tower of pisa fall Why is the Leaning Tower of Pisa leaning

What keeps the leaning tower of Pisa from falling?

The leaning tower of Pisa has not fallen till now thanks to the big work of specialized workers who acted specifically to prevent its falling.

The current building is the result of time-consuming reconstruction work, mostly to reduce the risk that the tower might collapse as a consequence of its remarkable inclination.

I remember that in the course of past years the tower was closed to the public for many years. For example, it was closed the January 7th, 1990 and it opened again 12 years later. Other times I’ve visited the tower while the workers were working upon it.

Why is the Pisa tower so famous?

Apart from its extremely famous inclination that really seems to defy the laws of statics, the Tower of the Cathedral is a very unusual building and one of a kind.

This is true for the high historical and artistic value of its forms and because of its peculiar location, within that vast and equally unique area that is the Piazza Dei Miracoli.

Where is it?

The building is located in Piazza Dei Miracoli but far from the Cathedral, between the apsidal area and the south-eastern section of the transept of the Cathedral.

This is an unusual location although this is not the only case as it can be found in other complexes in town and in other Italian buildings. However, a tower was usually erected near the facade or along one side of the church.

Inside the Leaning Tower

This stone area accommodates a winding staircase with 293 steps leading up to the open galleries, to the bell on top, and to the lower mezzanine floors. The inner shaft is closed by a vault with a central hole to let light in.

The lower floor, the six open galleries, and the bell divide the tower into eight segments that are called orders.

The lower floor is enriched by a round of blind arcades placed on half-columns. Under the arcade, there is a diamond-shaped compass inlaid with polychrome marble with a raised rosette in the middle.

The solid wall is interrupted by the openings of some narrow single-lancet windows. Westwards it’s also interrupted by the only entrance door: a rectangular area framed by a lintel.

Above the lintel, there is a crescent-shaped arch with an inlaid archivolt. It rests on two capitals as a continuation of the jambs forming a shrine containing the bust of a 14th-century Virgin with a Child.

On the sides of the door, there are some friezes decorated with animals and monstrous figures. There are also the unusual figures of some ships that frame the commemorative epigraph of the foundation of the building.
