If you are interested in history, culture and magnificent scenery this is the right place to be. Stresa with its liberty style hotels, the Isolabella with its baroque Palace, the picturesque fishermen island... Everything is perfect for a great holiday.

Just visited Lake Maggiore in the North of Italy and stayed at Villa Paradiso at Meina. What a gorgeous spot! Lovely room overlooking the lake. Clean and comfortable. Service was terrific and staff were really nice. Lots to do in the area.

Lago Maggiore in Northern Italy is the second largest lake in Italy. The shore has Italy to the south and Switzerland to the north. The town of Luino is on the Italian shore with beautiful views over the lake, a ferry, nice bars and restaurants.

We stayed in Strasa, Italy at the La Palma Hotel looking out at Lake Maggiore everyday. What a sight. We visited Borromean islands Isola Bella and Isola Madre and Pescatori (the fishermans island). Relaxing and beautiful.

This is really a big place by European standard. We liked the Swiss portion of the lake rather than the Italian side. Great drive if you have a sports car. We took a half day ferry and it was lovely. The trick is to go...More
