You can walk along the pier to the Imperia statue at the end which rotates and looks a little ugly! You get nice views of the lake along the pier.

This statue has a good story and it's impressive, paired with the great views of the lake and the alps, it's worth a visit. The area to stand below is rather small so if you want to admire it properly, avoid the crowds.
