Lake Maggiore extends for 66 kilometers between Italy and Switzerland. In Roman times it was called “Lacus Maximus” since it is larger than other lakes and thanks to the strategic position between two nations, the opening of Napoleon’s Route in 1805 and in 1906 of the international Simplon railway line, Lake Maggiore has acquired, through the centuries an important political standing.
Between the XV and XVIII centuries Lake Maggiore was governed as feudal property by the Borromeo Family and became their traditional holiday destination and representative seat.
Breath taking scenarios created by magnificent mansions and luscious parks and gardens, such as the ones on Isola Bella and Isola Madre, became in the XIX and early XX centuries, famous the world over and were greatly appreciated by European writers and musicians (i.e. Stendhal, Byron, Dumas senior, Flaubert, Ruskin, Dickens, Nietzsche, Dostoevskij, Hemingway, Mendelssohn, Listz, Wagner) in the XIX and early XX century, who chose Lake Maggiore as intermediate stop of their Grand Tour.
Today each small town around the lake retains its specific identity and tradition and awaits the eager visitor to discover its peculiar secrets and historic richness.
