There are numerous possibilities to see the whole area by boat. From Stresa or Baveno one can reach the Borromean islands and visit the botanical gardens of Isola Bella and Isola Madre and stop to have lunch and explore the characteristic village on the Fishermans island. The boats also stop at Carciano for the cable car to Mount Mottarone, and at Santa Caterina to visit the Sanctury which is on the Lombard shore of Lake Maggiore.

Verbano Viaggi can book your journey and issue all the tickets for the Lake Maggiore Express, the Lake Maggiore ferry service and the Mottarone cable car plus the entrance tickets to the Borromean palaces.
