Your private Lake Maggiore Day Trip from Milan starts in the morning, when meet your private driver at the lobby of your hotel in Milan, to reach the elegant water town of Stresa facing the Borromean islands on the lake side of the Lake Maggiore.

Once in Stresa you can stroll around the narrow streets of the elegant center and reach the Borromean Islands (Isola Madre with monumental mansions and stupend gardens, Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori) with one of the many public boats departing from the boat station of Stresa.

Isola Bella home of the 17th century Palazzo Borromeo, a sumptuous palace in baroque style surrounded by its magnificent terraced gardens.

Isola Madre, the largest of Borromean islands, famous for its large English-style garden, eight hectares offering a luxurious explosion of flowers, azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias and more.

Isola dei Pescatori, the smallest of Borromean Islands, once an old fishing village with café, shops, restaurants, perfect for a lunch pause.
