Owner description: A tiny island, little more than a rock-cliff, which is occupied almost entirely by a small, rustic village with narrow, winding lanes.
Reviewed December 8, 2014

One of the 3 islands on Lake Maggiore. This is a still working fishing village so is small but worth a trip to look round the tight small streets and to look but possibly also build in a trip to Isola Bella too. Not very big and as working village on the lake no much here.

After visiting Isola Bella island we came to this small island. it only takes a few minutes to walk around it and apart from St. Victor church there is little other than shops and pricey restaurants.

Not my cup of tea. Mostly tourist shops and pricey restaurants. If you could skip Pescatori and just see Bella and Madre, that would be best.

We went here as part of of a 3 island tour. We ended up just having lunch a look round the little shops as there isn't much else to do.

This is part of the 3 islands visit. I recommend to skip it. It's only restaurants and shops. Restaurants are expensive and not worth their value. Kiosks offer beverages but also expensive. There is nothing really to visit.
