Gracefully placed on the shoreline, Baveno holidays provide perfect views across the richly blue lake, while from behind you will be able to see the mountainous ranges that define Italy as a beautiful and varied landscape. The Borromean Gulf, the arm of Lake Maggiore, is where Baveno calls home. Elegantly indulgent, the many mansions across the towns of Baveno and Stresa give a man-made beauty to the natural landscape, which certainly enhances the atmosphere surrounding this particular part of Lake Maggiore, opening tourist’s eyes to the luxuries and romance Italy so effortlessly maintains. Across the way from Baveno you will see Verbania, the point to which Lake Maggiore forks, and behind that you will see the quaint little villages studded into the rising hills, peering out.
The Lake Maggiore Express
One of the best ways to absorb Lake Maggiore’s grandiosity during your holidays in Baveno is to take the Lake Maggiore Express, a one-day trip which will give you a fantastic opportunity to see the towns and valleys surrounding the lake. Nearby Stresa is where you’ll depart by train all the way to Locarno in Switzerland, before sailing back by ferry past the swooning swans and picturesque towns which litter the shoreline. Once you’ve ticked off the tour you can really start to enjoy Baveno, the Piazza della Chiesa is a hidden gem to many, but a breath-taking memory for all those who see it, while Hauoom Waterschool is a great place to show off your moves on the water board, or learn some if you’re an amateur. The perfect end to an evening on your holidays to Baveno would best be spent at the Miralago lounge bar, an opportunity to turn from water to wine in a wonderful setting.
