Day 2 Borromean Islands Driver’s Day Off
We will enjoy a leisurely day visiting the stunning Borromean Islands, located just offshore from the centre of Stresa. We will take the boat out to Isola Bella, which houses a beautiful stately home and elegant Italianate gardens. We will then continue by boat to Isola dei Pescatori, the only island which is currently inhabited.

Day 3 Lake Orta 50km/32 mile round trip
Today we will explore Lake Orta and one of northern Italy’s best kept secrets, its capital, Orta San Giulio, with a delightful medieval centre. We can enjoy browsing the old cobbled streets or take a boat over to Isola san Giulio to visit the picturesque monastery.

Day 4 Lake Maggiore Express
We will take the Lake Maggiore Express from Stresa to Domodossola (Wed – Sun only) at which point we change onto the scenic high level railway, the Centovalli, taking us through the mountains and down to Locarno, a bustling town on the Swiss shores of Lake Maggiore. After enjoying the fabulous views during our ride, we will have time to relax before taking a boat ride from this Swiss corner of Lake Maggiore back down to Stresa.
