  • This town and its lakeside setting is charm personified. The island nestling in the centre of the lake was just picture perfect. We did struggle to find parking when we first arrived around 1pm. But.....  more »
  • Clean waters, nice places, mice small villages, not too crowded as other lakes. Simple and healthy place.  more »
  • Fantastic!
  • One of the most beautiful places of northern Italy. Have a stroll along the lake. Enjoy some good food at the Michelin stared restaurant. Take a boat to the island. This lake, town and island is really worth a visit. Small enough so you can park your car on the hill and have a walk down to the old town.
