4 Day Lake Maggiore Discovery 2019
time 4 Days / 3 Nights

The Borromean Islands are the highlight of a stay at Lago Maggiore. Isola Bella will surprise you: its sumptuous baroque palace is completely furnished and its elegant rooms are full of paintings and works of arts. On Isola Madre the atmosphere is even more authentic: you will learn how the Borromeo family created a luxuriant English-style botanical garden full of tropical and rare plants. Isola Pescatori is the most lively, with its many little shops and cafés. On another day you will visit the gem of Lake Orta and the small town of Orta San Giulio with its 20 chapels whose frescoes tell the story of St. Francis of Assisi.

This is a great Add-On Package for anyone visiting Milan, Cinque Terre, or any part of Italy.  We are happy to help make travel arrangements for you to Stresa.

The Borromean Islands are the highlight of a stay at Lake Maggiore. On this full day tour you will visit all of them. Isola Bella will surprise you: its sumptuous baroque palace is completely furnished and its elegant rooms are full of paintings and works of arts. On Isola Madre the atmosphere is even more authentic: you will learn how the Borromeo family created a luxuriant English-style botanical garden full of tropical and rare plants. Isola Pescatori is the most lively, with its many little shops and cafés.

 

Breakfast in Hotel.

On this full day tour you will visit the gem of Lake Orta and the small town of Orta San Giulio. With your expert guide, you’ll walk through the old small town, learning about its long dated history.
Then a boat will take you to the only island in the middle of this small lake, surrounded by the mountains: the legend says Saint Jules killed a dragon here in the 4th century and his body still rests in the crypt of the church. On the island only cloistered nuns live, that's why it's also called "the island of silence". The Sacro Monte, on the top of the hill above Orta, is included in the list of the World Heritage: the clay statues and the frescoes in the 20 chapels, built from the 16th to the 18th century, tell the story of Saint Francis of Assisi.

This morning you may wake at your leisure and enjoy breakfast in your hotel before it's time to check out.

The day is yours.  You can either stay and explore Stresa, or continue on your own travel itinerary. 

*The departure transfer to Stresa train station or another destination is not included in the price of this package.  We are happy to arrange it for you.

We hope you enjoy this special experience!
