Iitinerary - Lake Maggiore Via The Alps

Day 1 - London to Geneva

Your adventure begins in London's St Pancras station, where you'll board the Eurostar from London to Paris. Change onto a high-speed train and whiz through France towards Switzerland in just over three hours. On arrival in French-speaking Geneva, make your way to your hotel for an overnight stay. Spend the evening enjoying a tasty meal at a local lakeside restaurant, or take a relaxing boat trip out on the lake and admire the city's cosmopolitan feel and the stunning backdrop of the Alps and the Jura mountains. (Overnight in Geneva). B

Day 2 - Geneva to Stresa

After breakfast, take the train from Geneva to Stresa, travelling through snowy passes, over vast viaducts, and past mountain villages where cows graze with their distinctive tinkling cloche bells. On arrival in Stresa, check into your hotel for a three-night stay. Like other northern Italian lakes, Lake Maggiore's credentials as a tourist destination go back hundreds of years. This idyllic spot has attracted visitors since the beginning of the 18th century, who come to soak up the sun, relax and enjoy the many attractions the area has to offer. Lakeside gardens bloom with a profusion of camelias, azaleas and rhodedendrons and the lake's azure waters are home to numerous species of freshwater fish, some of which can be sampled in the local restaurants. (Overnight in Stresa). B

Day 3 - Stresa

On the shores of the Borromean Gulf, Stresa is ideally situated as a base to explore the lake's villages, islands and natural beauty. A regular ferry runs from the town around the lake and the Isola Bella, the most well-known of the Borromean Islands, is only ten minutes away by boat. Stresa itself is a lovely little lakeside town with many markets, churches and botanical gardens to explore. Take the cable car up to Monte Mottarone for stunning views of the Alps and glimpses of the other lakes in the region. (Overnight in Stresa). B

Day 4 - Stresa

After breakfast this morning, stroll along the lake front to the Villa Pallavicino, a 19th century villa surrounded by landscaped parkland with beautiful plants, flowers and trees and a small zoo. Or just sit and relax in a café on the waterfront. (Overnight in Stresa) B

Day 5 - Stresa to UK

After breakfast, check out of your hotel and catch a bus to Milan Airport (payable locally). Catch your flight back to the UK from here. Prefer to return home by rail with a night in Lausanne? One of our Rail Experts will be happy to help you make these arrangements. B
