Lake Maggiore has been capturing hearts with its charm and sense of timeless grandeur since the 19th century. On the sun-blessed shores of this beautiful Italian lake, one might be forgiven for forgetting that the rush and bustle of the outside world exists.
Despite extending north into Switzerland, the lake’s shore has an almost sub-tropical atmosphere, with gardens filled with exotic vegetation and blossoms of verbena and oleander. Despite its inherent beauty, it draws relatively fewer tourists than the likes of Lake Como or Garda, making Lake Maggiore holidays a more serene affair.
Relax and bask in the sun or stroll along the lakeshore promenade, with tempting cafes and gelaterie on our Lake Maggiore escorted tours. Whether it’s the joys of a sun-lounger by the pool or in a secluded spot, taking to the water on a cruise to the enchanting Borromean islands or simply enjoying long leisurely lunches, the highlight of Lake Maggiore tours is the sense of serenity surrounding you. However you choose to spend your days, you’re sure to come back from holiday feeling relaxed.
Lake Maggiore holidays provide the chance to sample the superb local lake fish.
Perhaps best enjoyed in the picturesque fishing village of Isola dei Pescatori, perch, bleak, pike and trout are all readily available in the region.
For a unique Lake Maggiore dish, be sure to look out for minestra di castagne e latte. Usually eaten as a first course, this soup made with milk and chestnuts is particularly inviting during the winter months.
Those with a sweet tooth are sure to be delighted with the region's variety of sugary treats. One of the best is the margheritine di Stresa, a daisy-shaped biscuit with a moreish buttery lemon flavour.
