A private wintertime tour on lake Maggiore

By Micaela - Private Tour Guide Lake Maggiore Orta Guided Tours
This is a special wintertime tour, available also during the Christmas season, that will allow you to see two of the highlights of lake Maggiore also in the winter: the hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso and isola Bella. Using a comfortable private boat ( covered!) we will enjoy a cruise on lake Maggiore as far as the lombard shore where we will visit the fascinating hermitage of Santa Caterina with its 16th-century frescoed church. The church and the two convents were built on very steep rocks on the lake and the view iof this incredible site from the water is really impressive. We will then enjoy another boat ride to isola Bella. The interiors of Isola Bella's palace and the gardens will not be accessible this time of the year, but you will be able to admire the beauty of isola Bella through its picturesque village on a guided stroll with your private local guide. You will also enjoy a private boat tour around isola Bella to see the whole island with its terraced gardens.

Merveilleuse découverte de Orta, de son lac , de l’ile san Giulio, du mont sacré …etc grâce à Micaela notre guide . Rien n’a de secret pour cette amoureuse du Piémont et tout est facile d’accès en sa compagnie ! Petit bateau privé, rencontre de gens du cru qu’elle connaît parfaitement, histoire de tous les lieux visités !!! Quel talent , quel puit de culture cette gentille femme qui parle parfaitement français ! Pour mon mari et moi, cette Saint Valentin 2022 restera gravée dans notre cœur avec Micaela en ange gardien 💕
