Island-hop around the islands of Lake Maggiore and create your own itinerary with a hop-on hop-off ferry ticket. With a day pass you can spend your day sightseeing at your own pace, spending as much or little time on each island as you wish. Step onto the shores of Isola Bella, wander around tiny Isola dei Pescatori; and admire the botanical gardens of Isola Madre.

It was a good walk but nothing special there were not many views to look at with all of the foliage on the trees and high walls, the best being at the Belgirate end where there were no trees. The Church of San Paola was in a locked compound.
