The best way to see the lakeside resorts, villas(especially Taranto) and Islands. Isola Bella, Isola Pescatori and Isola Madre all worth visiting as is Baveno.

This is a brilliant way for getting around the lake. The boats are frequent and mostly run to time, although they are sometimes quite crowded. The timetable is easy to understand.

Busy spot for tourists to book boats to the several islands off Stresa as well as the ferry all the way to Intra across the lake. Right off the main part of town with lots of parking for tourists.

It was very easy to get from Stresa to all three of the Borromean islands. The captains were always on time, very polite, totally efficient at getting their passengers to the next amazing island. Well worth the small price!
