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

It is a lot cheaper to use the public ferry company which runs out of most of the ports around the Stresa/ Baveno/ Verbania part of the lake. They will sell you a 'hopper' type ticket which includes all the entrances to Isola Bella and Isola Madre for the gardens and palaces. Take the earliest ferry that you can to... More

I hadn't read any of the reviews before heading to the island. It was amazing and is one of the most incredible palace's I have seen. The inside was amazing, unique, well kept and full of history. The gardens are beautiful so take time for pictures. Also, some of the shops on the island had nicer quality shopping than what... More

While in Baveno, near Stresa, I took a boat to go to one of the Borromean Islands. These are a place not to be missed while in Lago Maggiore. They have several boat services. They are reliable and easy to use. This time I only went to Isla dei Pescadori (Fishermen's Island), but there are two more to see on... More
