The North West Italy region
Spanning Italy and Switzerland, Lake Maggiore nestles between hillsides clad with forests, orange blossom and verbena to create an oasis of outstanding natural beauty. It's little wonder that so many composers, authors and poets have come here to find their muse. From Rossini to Hemmingway, Lake Maggiore's serene waters, with its stunning Alpine backdrop, have provided a source of endless inspiration.
Must-see attractions include the world renowned botanical gardens Villa Taranto, famed for its floral displays and ingenious landscaping. Isola Bella is one of three gorgeous islands on the lake and comes complete with baroque palace and terraced gardens. Whilst the Mottarone Cable Car provides views of the mountains and lake that will live with you forever.
In fact, wherever you go around Lake Maggiore, from the enchanting medieval villages which dot the hillsides to a trip on the splendid Lake Maggiore Express, you're sure to remember it always.
