Itinerary

Description

Join us for this super holiday to the Italian Lake District, based in Stresa, the main town on Lake Maggiore. It's made up of three main piazzas and cobbled, traffic-free streets, each with a string of individual shops, bars and cafés. There's a cable car to the top of Monte Mottarone, and ferry boats going from Piazza Marconi to other lake resorts such as Baveno, Pallenza and Ascona. If you're keen on horticulture don't miss the Villa Taranto Gardens, one of the region's most famous attractions.

Air Itinerary

Day 1
We fly to Milan and transfer to our hotel near the centre of Stresa.

Day 2 – Day at leisure

Day 3 –Lake Maggiore Cruise
Today we embark on a scenic cruise of Lake Maggiore visiting Isola Pescatori (Fishermen's Island), a lovely island with simple, quaint houses lining the cobbled lanes and fishing boats bobbing around gently in the harbour, and Isola Bella, the most famous of the Borromean Islands, with its gorgeous Palace and Gardens, featuring ornate rooms, grottoes and spectacular formal terraces (admission is included in the tour).

Day 4 – Three Lakes Tour
We enjoy a tour of three beautiful lakes in two different countries today, starting with Lake Maggiore itself, and then heading north past the snow-capped peaks of the Alps to Lake Lugano in Switzerland. Lugano town nestles between the peaks of San Salvatore and Monte Brè; where we can take a stroll along the palm-lined promenade, or enjoy a coffee in the delightful Piazza Riforma. We continue on to Lake Como, a former glacier lake, generally regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.


Como town has an attractive 14th-century Duomo (cathedral) and a vast array of silk shops. We'll also have a chance to visit Villa Carlotta (admission not included) and its terrace gardens, featuring over 500 plant species from giant sequoia to camellias, overlooking beautiful Bellagio.

Day 5– Day at leisure

Day 6 – Centovalli & Locarno Cruise
Today we take the train from Stresa to Domodossola then transfer to the narrow gauge Centovalli ('Hundred Valleys') train for one of Switzerland and Italy's most scenic Alpine railway journeys, winding eastwards up to Locarno across many bridges, viaducts and vertiginous drops. Locarno is well known for its International Film Festival, and has an attractive harbour and a castle thought to have been designed by none other than Leonardo da Vinci. We'll have some free time in Locarno before returning to Stresa in the late afternoon.

Day 7– Day at leisure

We check out of our hotel and transfer to Milan airport for our return flight home.
