What to expect

Only some 400 yards away from Stresa is the Isola Bella, the most beautiful of the Borromean family Islands. This ticket lets you board the boat and sail along the idyllic waters of Lake Maggiore until you reach your destination after just 10 minutes.

Once on Bella Island, you can spend as much time as you like exploring every hidden corner and discovering exactly why it was given this unique name. No trip would be complete without visiting the magnificent Palazzo Borromeo palace and its impressive fairy-tale gardens.

Times and frequency

The tourist boat leaves from Stresa every 30 minutes from March to November from 9:30 am to 6 pm.

How does it work?

The pass allows you to use the boat that sails from Stresa to Bella island, as many times as you want during the operational schedule, for one full day.
