Bus Travel Description

Experience a wonderful trip to Lake Maggiore in Italy. Between the mountains, the lake conjures up a picture-perfect image and invites you to dream. Relax and enjoy the typical Italian flair, the cuisine and an exciting program. At its widest point, Lake Maggiore opens up to the Borromean Bay with the famous Borromean Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori. While Isola Bella has been transformed into a wonder of Baroque design by the Borromeo family and Isola Madre is an ideal garden landscape, Isola dei Pescatori has remained simple and original in character.
The region around Lake Maggiore combines the blooming alpine landscape between Italy and Switzerland with the Mediterranean sea air.
