Dream away by Lake Maggiore, the second largest lake in Italy, which glitters among the natural scenery of the Southern Alps and boasts palazzo-topped islands. The shores are peppered with colourful fishing villages, where you’ll find cobbled streets sheltering quaint trattorie
that serve up delicious lake fish and wine from the surrounding vineyards. What’s more, Lake Maggiore is just an hour away from Italy’s fashion capital, Milan.
