What to expect

Enjoy the wonders of the lake during an exclusive panoramic cruise that will make you discover the most beautiful places of the Borromeo Gulf: Stresa, the Borromean Islands, the villas of the Belle Epoquè of the Piedmont coast and the Lombard coast of Lake Maggiore, reaching the monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso Ballaro.

Departure and meeting point from Piazza Marconi Stresa, you will find a large parking lot and the possibility of boarding directly from the private pier of C.M.A.

Itinerary:

1st Stop - Isola Pescatori: it is the most picturesque of the islands, it owes its name to the activity of its inhabitants. Its charm is given by the archaic simplicity, the pleasant whiteness of the houses and alleys. In addition to the typical local handicraft stores on the island you can taste delicious lake fish dishes in the renowned restaurants and taverns.

2° Stop - Isola Bella: it is an extraordinary place, where flowering gardens adorn architectural treasures. Transformed from a rock to a flowery oasis, the island is entirely occupied by the Italian-style garden of the Borromeo Palace, a masterpiece of Baroque suspended over the waters of Lake Maggiore.

3° at 17:30 boarding from Stresa for tour Santa Caterina: Splendid navigation to admire the fascinating Piedmontese coast where the most imposing villas on the lake overlook. We will then continue sailing towards the Lombard coast where it will be possible to see the famous hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso, a monastery perched on a sheer cliff overlooking the lake.

Return at about 18:45
