While ago I had discusion with several Vters regarding lakes of Maggiore and Garda. The key question was, which one of this two lakes is more bautiful? I am regularly visiting Lake of Garda, considering it the most beautiful lake in whole Italy. As for Lake of Maggiore, I've visited it before, eastern side only, but since I didn't like it have never made any photo of it. Once before, during my regular visits to Varese, I've visited Arona during the winter, but couldn't seen much of it because of the fog.
This page is my tribute to above mentioned discusion, in order to prove that my statment was right. There are many fancy villas all over the Lake of Maggiore, which cannot be seen around the Lake of Garda, however, nothing here can be compared with the beauty of Sirmione, Lazise, Bardolino, Malcesine....
Isola dei Pescatori, the Fishermen Island, is definetely the most beautiful part of Lago Maggiore. Although much smaller and without canals, its structure reminded me alot to Burano (Venice lagoon). Short and narrow streets inside the place are in particularly pitoresque.
Isola Bella, the Beautiful Island, is probably the best known and most visited spot on Lago Maggiore. Sincerely, I didn't like much its structure. There is an park, which is tawdriness, as far as I am concerned. Besides, Palazzo Borromeo is of enourmuous proportions for such a small island.
