Lake Maggiore, what to see? Borromean Islands

The Borromean Islands are an excellent choice for those who want to do a complete visit because they have all day free, but also for those who want to do only a half-day visit because they want to spend a more relaxing day or they simply have less time. In fact, it is not necessary to visit all three islands in one day to have a great day.

If you want more details about the Borromean Islands, go to the dedicated page: Lake Maggiore Borromean Islands Italy

Mottarone Stresa

Mottarone is the mountain that lies behind Stresa and is easily accessible by car. There are 2 roads: one a little longer and more winding which is free, and another is more convenient but requires the payment of a toll.

In any case, it is really worth going up the Mottarone as the real peculiarity of this place is that it offers a magnificent view of 7 lakes! On days when the sky is particularly clear, the spectacle is unforgettable.

Lake Maggiore Italy things to do: Mottarone Stresa.

As for nature on Mottarone, there is not only a beautiful view but you can also find some nice animals such as donkeys and cows.

For fun lovers on the Mottarone, there is Alpyland: a rail bob with which you can descend along a part of the mountain in a very fun way. The adjustable speed makes it suitable for everyone … even the less intrepid.

After all these activities, if you may be hungry: no problem because you can enjoy excellent food in one of the restaurants that we find right here. Surely a good lunch is never refused!

If you want to know more, go to the following post: Mottarone Stresa Lake Maggiore. On this page, you also find the name of the seven lakes you can see from the Mottarone.

3. Sasso del Ferro Laveno

The Sasso del Ferro is located just above Laveno. It can be reached by cable car or by following a path but the most convenient option is certainly the cable car you find in Laveno. 

We do not have a view of the 7 lakes from here, but the view is beautiful: you can see the entire Borromean Gulf.

A dinner here is always a special event. If, on the other hand, you prefer a more low-budget or simpler trip, you can also opt for a picnic or you can have something at the bar. In fact, here at the top of the Sasso del Ferro, there is not only a restaurant but also a bar.

Watch the following video where you can see the Sasso del Ferro and what you can visit in Laveno.

Lake Maggiore Italy things to do and amazing towns: Hermitage of Santa Caterina

Text of the video:

Hi Everybody, our next stop? The Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso Lake Maggiore Italy.

The Hermitage of Santa Caterina is in my Top 10 things to see on Lake Maggiore.

It is an extraordinary place as it is set in the rock directly overlooking the waters of Lake Maggiore.

The Hermitage of Santa Caterina is a few kilometers from Laveno.

How to get to the Hermitage?

You have 2 options: by car or by boat.

If you choose the car option, you have to know that once you have parked the car, you have to go down a long staircase of 268 steps, which you then have to go up on the way back.

However, there is the possibility of taking the lift for a fee.

However, the best option to get to the Hermitage of Santa Caterina is by boat.

Much of the beauty, charm, and uniqueness of the hermitage can be appreciated when you observe it from the lake.

You can take the boat to the Hermitage of Santa Caterina from different locations: from Laveno, Stresa, and Verbania Pallanza for example.

Once you arrive at the Hermitage, you don’t need a lot of time to visit it: its main elements are a portico, a courtyard, and a small church.

What is the history of the Hermitage of Santa Caterina?

You can read some historical notes and other information in the subtitles while we still enjoy some scenes of the Hermitage.

According to tradition, the Hermitage was founded in 1170 by Alberto Besozzi, a wealthy local merchant.

This merchant escaped a shipwreck during a lake crossing.

So he made a vow to Saint Catherine to retire for the rest of his life in prayer and solitude in a cave on that stretch of coast and lead a hermit’s life there.

He then had a chapel dedicated to Santa Caterina built, currently visible at the bottom of the church. The chapel dates back to the 12th century.

The chapel was flanked by two other churches built by some Ispra nobles: San Nicola and Santa Maria Nova.

The existence of the two churches is certain, starting from the fourteenth century.

As you can see, our visit is over. At this point, I greet you. Bye, and see you on the next adventure!

Cannero Riviera + Castles of Cannero + Cannobbio

We have decided to include these 3 locations together as they are located in the same area and can be visited on the same day, especially thanks to the boat connections.

Cannero Riviera

Cannero Riviera is a splendid town on Lake Maggiore and is known for its beautiful lakefront and wide beach. To have a better idea about how Cannero is, you can watch the following video. In the video, the town is empty because it is December. In the summertime, Cannero is full of people.

This video starts from the Cannero beach and we go along the entire lakefront.

Then we explore the historic town center with its so characteristic streets. The video ends while we are on the boat for Cannobio. Thanks to this boat tour we enjoy the lake coast view and can see the Castles of Cannero. Watch the video!

Castles of Cannero

The Castles of Cannero have their unique charm. Their shape and location make the mind wander, imagining stories and adventures that took place right here.

In some periods of the year the Castles of Cannero can also be visited inside. If, on the other hand, you simply want to see them more closely, you can take the boat that from Cannero Riviera goes to Cannobio; the boat passes very close to the Castles of Cannero, more precisely between the coast of Lake Maggiore and the Castles of Cannero.

Watch the following video!

Lake Maggiore Italy things to do and amazing towns: Castles of Cannero

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

Cannobio is another famous town on Lake Maggiore. Cannobio is located on the Piedmontese shore of Lake Maggiore near the Swiss border. Cannobio is easily recognizable by the row of buildings that directly overlook the main square and the lake.

In the following video, you can see Cannobio from the lake.

Lake Maggiore Borromean Islands how to get there?

Borromean Islands hop on hop off 

The Borromean Islands can be reached by boat thanks to the Navigazione del Lago Maggiore service from Verbania, Baveno and Stresa. No reservation is required for the boat to the islands. Just go to the landing stage of the place where you are and buy the tickets.

If you want to visit several islands, you can buy a single ticket and move freely between the chosen islands without a set time: it very similar to a hop on hop off tour.  During your visit you will decide the boat’s most suitable time for your tour.

There are also numerous private transport services, especially by speedboat, which take you to the islands.

What are the islands that are part of the Borromean Gulf?

The islands of the Borromean Gulf are 3:

  1. Isola Madre: entirely private and can be visited according to the opening hours and by purchasing the entrance ticket.
  2. Isola Bella. On Isola Bella we find the beautiful Borromeo palace with its gardens. Unlike the Isola Madre, a part of the island can be visited for free as this part is occupied by restaurants, bars and shops.
  3. The Isola Superiore or Isola dei Pescatori. This island does not need any entrance tickets. On the island there are no sumptuous palaces but the village is very characteristic. Then on this island there are some excellent restaurants;).

Beautiful island

Until 1630 Isola Bella was only a rock inhabited by fishermen but 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.

Lake Maggiore Borromean Islands Italy: Isola Bella

Fishermen Island

Isola Pescatori can be easily reached by boat from Stresa, Verbania Pallanza and Baveno. To take the boat you do not need special reservations. You can also buy the ticket just before boarding.

Access to Isola Pescatori is free and you do not have to pay any entrance ticket apart from a small tax from the municipality of Stresa, already included in the amount paid to take the boat. When to visit Isola Pescatori? The best time is certainly during the summer but it is also a good idea to come during the winter.

Why come to Isola Pescatori? Because it is very characteristic and beautiful to explore especially after a good lunch in one of the restaurants found here. Hours spent on this island are always special.

Lake Maggiore Borromean Islands Italy: Isola Pescatori

Isola Madre or the Mother Island

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

Lake Maggiore Borromean Islands Italy: Isola Madre

Isola Bella and Isola Pescatori Illuminated

In the following video we see Isola Bella and Pescatori illuminated. The illuminated islands are clearly visible from the boat but also from the coast, for example from Carciano Stresa.

Lake Maggiore Cannero Riviera Italy – Cannero Riviera is a splendid Lake Maggiore town and is known first of all for two things: for its beautiful lakefront and its wide beach.

I can say that, unlike other locations on Lake Maggiore, Cannero Riviera has a double personality. Very lively and lively in the summer but extremely quiet in the winter. In fact, Cannero Riviera empties in winter. Watch the following videos to better understand what I mean.

Itinerary from Cannero Riviera

After visiting Cannero Riviera, you can explore the nearby towns and places of interest. The best way to do it is by boat because you can enjoy the beauty of Lake Maggiore more fully.

Castles of Cannero

We had a nice winter walk in Cannero Riviera and 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 you spend more in this way but you also 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.

In the preceding 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, which 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. It was sunny on the other side of the lake 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.

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.

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.
