Boat Trip to Verbania – Open Air markets at Intra

This was another fabulous day out on Lake Maggiore. We took the ferry-boat from Stresa to Verbania/Intra which only took about 35/40 minutes. As always when travelling on Lake Maggiore the scenery was stunning including these beautiful villas along the way. 378 more words

A wonderland in the Italian Alps

Oh how I would love to return to Lake Maggiore – surely one of the most beautiful and beguiling of destinations.

La Fontana - Stresa

I don’t normally write about hotels that I stay in but this time I make an exception to my rule.

After a long full day of travel by train  from La Spezia near the Cinque Terre to Stresa, via Milano, we were all tired and hot. 229 more words

Isola Bella

A peak at the extensive gardens of Palazzo Borromeo on Isola Bella on Lake Maggiore. The garden is a fabulous example of Baroque Italian garden design.
