Borromean islands

The Borromean islands on lake maggiore: timeless paradises thet continue to enchant visitors

From the Tresa Bay Hotel in Ponte Tresa to the nearby Lake Maggiore, a day by boat to discover these beautiful islands known throughout the world. An excursion not to be missed!


There are three Borromean Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori, each one unique and enchanting in its kind, celebrated for their beauty by writers and poets from all over the world, past and present.
Isola Bella has been transformed from a rock into a flowering garden, with ten hanging terraces, culminating in the Teatro Massimo and the large panoramic terrace overlooking the lake. It is the island with the most grandiose palace, of baroque architecture.
Isola Madre is the largest of the three, characterized by an English park full of rare plants, exotic flowers, peacocks and pheasants that are meet walking along the avenues. Here too we find an ancient palace open to the public, furnished with furniture of the Borromeo family.
Lastly, Isola dei Pescatori, the most touristy of the three, is occupied by an old fishing village, with various souvenir shops and restaurants on the lake.

The location of the Tresa Bay Hotel, located on the shores of Lake Lugano and a few kilometers from Luino, on Lake Maggiore, allows you to organize a unique day, dedicated to visiting the Borromean Islands.
You can choose between two itineraries:
by car or postbus to Luino and from there take the boat to the islands. TIMETABLE
by car to Laveno Mombello, from where scheduled boats leave for the Islands (recommended route)
Info and timetables at the hotel reception.

And after coming back?
Relax with an aperitif and a delicious dinner by the lake on our romantic terrace.
