Made a day trip to lake, went around the lake by car. There is also a ferry on the lake taking you to Isola Maggiore. Visited ornitological park observing birds, and lake fish.

We have visited this lake 3 times, because we love it so much. This time the weather was hot enough to swim in the lake at lido di Tuaro. The beach there is well equipped for tourists but still simple and quiet enough to enjoy. Our children spent hours sliding into the river and playing in the relatively safe and... More

Attractive nature, nice beaches, some islands to visit, medieval towns, good restaurants, scenic views, lots of accommodation possibilities... I recommend to travel around the lake - you will need your own transportation - even the bicycle will do the job. It is very tranquil out... More

I cycled around the lake alone! And it's an amazing experience. There are cute towns and great views all around it. Recommend

I was here in April , and I really enjoy walking around the beautiful characteristic towns all around....in a day you can circumnavigate the all area and take a boat ride to the islands , and still have a great dinner in any of the typical restaurants. But even better stop by any one of the alimentari (grocery store) and... More

We spent several excellent autumn hours here. View is fascinating! The islands, the seagulls, the sun, simple laying on a grass with a cup of tea - everything stayed in memory

As part of our tour, we visited the town of Touro and then the Island of Maggiore. Nice walk, good history of Assisi and his stay on the island, scenic view from top, and "castle" that at this time was closed due to litigation. We had a good lunch at L'Antico Orologio. For an outing on a beautiful day --... More

Beautiful lake, lovely views. We took a boat trip to the island, had a picnic & walked around the island which was a nice half day out. (Thus is a lovely area of Italy - just choose your accommodation carefully as ours was awful...see reviews).
