 » lake Maggiore  » Destinations  » Piedmont



Piedmont lake MaggioreThe blue of the lakes and the green of the hills ideally embrace all the Piedmont. But it is in the area of the lake Maggiore that these two colours melt in a sublime way. Every village on the lake has a peculiarity: from Baveno, Verbania and Belgirate, that conserve splendid Romanesque churches, to Cannero and Cannobio, with the castles risen on the water. In Ghiffa, there is the Sacro Monte della Santissima Trinità, that offers a breathtaking view on the lake and marvellous artistic works. In Verbania it is possible to visit the park of Villa Taranto, while in Stresa there is the zoological park of Villa Pallavicino.
