We opted for this service instead of the larger ferry. You can pretty much tailor your trip to wherever you want to go for different prices. We used it to go to Isola dei Pescatori and then an hour and a half later they picked us up, promptly and took us to Isola Bella. Very convenient.

We took a day ticket on the official Navigazione and visited the 3 islands at our own pace; in July there is a boat almost every 30mins (except some in the early afternoon). No entry tickets are included in this price, so if you want to visit Isola Madre (must do; beautiful garden and castle), you need an additional fee... More

These water taxi style boats are the best way to get around the islands and villages. Run regularly and easy to travel on.

Spot on. The boats run to time and are the best way to get around the lake. The seats on some of the boats (the boats are all different designs) were cheap plastic and uncomfortable, but the journey times are short.

The ferries on the lake are a must. And the island hopping is such great fun. We went in May when the weather was just picture perfect.

Great experience. Big boats circulate around the islands, stop at each of them.Unless you are a big group of people do not accept the offers of the small boats (taxis) and walk inside the port gate and purchase tickets for the ferries. Several options, the greatest experience is the panorama trip to Lugano in Switzerland on hoover craft or slower... More

The connections are very good to all islands and to towns along the shore but they are rather expensive for a long stay and unfortunately the last boats are early evening. there is other transportation but it a bit more expensive.

We bought our tickets at the Ferry Station. We purchased the Rover Tickets (Libera Circolazione) which is unlimited travel for one day between the islands and at the same time also purchased the entrances to the Villas and Gardens on Isola Bella & Isola Madre. We qualify for Sr. Discount and the lady cheerfully gave us the discount. We paid... More

This is a must do for adults when in Stresa. We were a group of four adults and did all three islands in the day, although it was 15,000 steps on our Fitbits! We were early enough that Isola Bella was not too crowded, perhaps because it was a Sunday. Isola Bella was an over the top wonder, although tour... More
