This is the best way to get around the Lake.We stayed in Stresa(nice town)and we used the public service boats frequently to visit other attractions.Beware of the boat tour sharks as they linger in the car park,trying to get your business,they do cost a bit more,try and avoid them,they are good humoured though you can have a bit of banter with them.The public service boats are reasnobly prices and frequent.Get the day pass at 15 euros it may seem a lot but you can step off and on all day.You can visit the islands without paying,some tour operators will tell you it costs to get on the islands,but it only costs for example if you decide to visit the house and gardens on Isola Bella,you can just wander around the shops and bars or sit in the park at the end of the island.We chose to visit the house and gardens which was well worth it.

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.

We have been advised all sorts of private or other tours to visit the three islands . The public service is the ONLY one to chose . for a fee of grosso modo 15 euros per person you wlll hop on and off the boat to visit all the islands . the shuttle picks up and drops travelers every 30 minutes . perfect and simple .

Frequent and comfortable boats on Lake Maggiore run to accurate timetables. The Stresa to Locarno (Switzerland) journey takes just over 3 hours and allows a two hour visit to Locarno. Reasonably priced, very good lunch is available and there is also a bar so a relaxing day can be spent on the water.
The Barromean Islands are quickly reached from Stresa. Staff at ticket offices speak English and are always helpful.
