Lago Maggiore, Italy’s second largest, stretches to the foot of the majestic Monte Rosa and jealously safeguards noble ancient villas surrounded by fabled gardens which often serve as movie sets.
Lago di Como is perhaps the most fashionable and internationally renowned thanks to the presence of several villas owned by famous celebrities. The beauty of this lake has been praised even by Alessandro Manzoni, and along its shores tourists can visit places of great cultural importance like Villa d’Este in Cernobbio and Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio. By contrast, Lago d’Iseo is Northern Italy’s smallest lake and makes an ideal destination for all cycling lovers . The lake’s shores can be explored by riding through a cycling path that allow visitors to marvel at a truly enchanting landscape. We also recommend you to pay a visit at the picturesque islet of Monte Isola.
