A very relaxing place with nice towns and broad lakeside promenades. Towns of Stress and Aroma on the Italian side of the lake are nice tourist type towns which are relaxed and pleasant places to stay or visit. There are plenty of nice gardens around the lake and on the islands of the lake. The Maggiore Express is a nice trip into Switzerland and takes a full day with the boat back from Locarno. All in all a nice place to visit with as much or as little to da as you want.
