Overview
Lake Maggiore is one of the most scenic destinations in northern Italy, but visiting on your own from Milan can be stressful. With this day trip, skip the tricky logistics and enjoy round-trip transportation from Milan to the chic resort town of Stresa. Explore the town center, then set sail on a boat tour around the lake–stopping at the Borromean Islands–before the return trip to Milan.

An easy day trip from Milan. Only took one hour. Had a lovely walk along the promenade looking at the lovely hotels and abandoned villas. Just a beautiful outlook looking out the the Borromeon islands.
