This opportunity provides a great panoramic view of the Borromean Gulf and its two shores. We will begin cruising on the western shore weaving through islets and other Borromeo islands, such as the Isola Madre.

Isola Bella and its Palazzo

Isola Bella's name means the beautiful island, and it is the gem of the Borromean Gulf. Between the 16th and the 17th century, Charles Borromeo III dedicated himself in building a Palazzo and named the Island Isabella, in honour of his wife Isabella D'Adda. Soon after, their son Vitaliano Borromeo IV designed and created the magnificent baroque styled garden with its ten blooming terraced gardens enriched with basins and fountains.

Lunch at quaint Isola dei Pescatori

Discover the quaint island of Isola dei Pescatori, while you have a lunch break. Take a pleasant walk along the narrow lanes, discovering bends and cute shops highlighting the small fishing village. After lunch break, we will depart for another cruise down the eastern shore of Maggiore Lake passing through Laveno Mornbello village.Herald as another jewel of the lake, the national monument of Italy is the Hermitage of Santa Catherina del Sasso. It is an outstanding monastic complex perched and embedded in a mountain rock. Here, we will have a guided tour discovering the frescoes and convents. The monastery platform provides a perfect spot for another angle to a complete panoramic view of Maggiore Lake.
