Get to know Lake Maggiore with Viator

Lake Maggiore is northern Italy’s quieter, less glamorous foil to the nearby headliners of Como and Garda, its genteel elegance anchored by the belle epoque hotels and promenades that line its shores. The lake''s wilder northern tip lies across the Swiss border, but the stately southern shores see the most action—with resort towns like Stresa and Verbania serving as tony bases for visiting the verdant Borromean Islands.
