We had a lovely boat trip over to Isolde Bella in July when we stayed in Stresa. The boat was spotless and the captain excellent, very aware of safety and assisting those with walking difficulties onto the boat. The boats are frequent and on our return my sister and I had the whole boat to ourselves. Excellent service and a... More

If you want to visit all the islands and towns this ferry service is great they are always on time. Get a day pass however, this way you can hop on and off at all locations it cost 41 euro for two passes

Smaller craft that dock at small terminals. Quick and fun. Can be a bit awkward for older folks or those with disabilities. Would suggest you use the other ferries.

One of the easiest ways to get around the lake is by boat, and while it's not that cheap it's still a great way to travel. Timetables are available from the tourist information, and they were pretty punctual too.

The ferry service to the islands and other lake destinations is their bus service, as regular as train service. Good signage makes clear the various rates and which boat is arriving and departing. Helpful crew make boarding and debarking go smoothly. PA announcements make clear destination and arrival. Seniors fare not a big discount, but nice to have. Other fares... More

The ferry service covers the towns on the lake and the islands but it is expensive and the attitude of the attendants at the various locations was to say the least bad to good. Some were helpful and others did not care.

I was on holiday in Milan near the end of April, when we decided to drive up to Stresa for a day trip. The weather was pleasant and once we arrived all the ferry ports were easy to locate. We had early lunch at a nearby restaurant and then paid an agent for our ferry tickets. The all day tkts... More

Regular service - claim to have 35 boats. 15euros ticket takes you first to the Isole Madre, then the Isole Pescatori and finally Isole Bella. The service seems to be every 15minutes but each "driver" tells you they are hourly - probably easier to explain. Generally on time but varied from 5 mins early to late. Don't sit on the... More
