From Stresa, the easiest way to explore the lake is by local ferry.

 

In the immediate area (the Borromean Bay) there are regular ferries running every 30 minutes all day from around 08.00 until around 18.00. Download  the winter 2016/17 and summer 2017 timetables here:

The best way to explore the Borromean Bay is using a "Rover Ticket" which allows you to hop on and off the ferries all day. Current prices range from € 13.80 to € 20.70 depending on which area you wish to cover. If you purchase a Rover Ticket you can also add on the entrance fees to palaces, gardens and villas at a discounted rate.

 

You can also purchase a "Super Saver" ticket which differs from the traditional Rover Ticket in that you must make stops in a certain order. But it does save you money. You can read a guide to the ferries on our travel notes blog.

 

All types of ferry ticket can be purchased at Tomassucci Travel. As all our staff speak English you can be sure you will get the exact ticket for your planned journey.
