Lake navigation offers the emotions of a short cruise of days gone by and is recommended for all. As soon as the boat leaves the pier the landscape changes: moving away from the shores one is struck by the vision of the picturesque villages (Ascona, Bissone, Gandria, Morcote), which the waters reflect, with the mountaintops all around.
It stops at the Brissago Islands and the Borromeo Islands in nearby Italy (Isola Bella, Isola Madre and the Isola dei Pescatori on Lake Maggiore), little botanical paradises rich with historical suggestiveness.
In addition to the shipping line that offers many day trips on the lakes, in Ticino you can rent boats and private boats to give a special touch to your holiday.
The picturesque towns located on the lake’s shores will welcome you for a short walk or a leisurely lunch, accompanied by local products.
