The best way to travel around the lake. The schedule is timely and the staff makes sure everyone boards safely. Used at least 25 times always good.

Its not easy getting though all the private boat owners, nicely dressed as captains, trying to convince you that they are providing the same service as Navigazione Sulle....but DO pass them by and head straight for the official booking office just to the left side of the tourist board. The ferry service is on time, reliable and the best option... More

We used this public service extensively as it really is the best way to visit all the attractions around the Lake and found pricing reasonable when compared to public transport costs in Ireland(same goes for Rail tickets). Timetables are easy to follow and there is a quick turnaround time for boats, so should you want to move on from one... More

We used this a few times to return from Switzerland and to visit the islands on the lake. We liked that it was easy to use and timetables easy to understand. Nothing to dislike.

We went on Sunday 1st September 2013 from Turin by using the tourist bus Turin-Lago Maggiore that works on a Sunday.We went down at Stresa and we used the tragghetto[big ship] because one has to be careful where to book. A young guy approached us and said that we were booking the public tragghetto but no it was a small... More

From Stresa we were able to discover Lake Maggiore with ease. Just watch the change given back to you. Twice we were short changed!

We arrived in Stresa and in a few minutes we were on the boat which took us to isola dei pescatori. From there with around trip ticket you go to isola Bella and after a worthwile visit to the Villa home of the Borromeo family and its wonderful gardens, back to Stresa. The boats come and go every half hour.

Whilst Lake Maggiore enjoys excellent panoramic road views, for me, it's best to enjoy the freedom of the water, and the different aspect one gains viewing the mountains from the lake rather than the other way round. It's a great way to visit some of the towns and beauty spots dotted on Lake Maggiore's shores. Besides the magnificent Islands in... More
