Lake Maggiore, also called Verbano and the second largest lake of Italy, is at the foot of the Alps, where was formed in the glacial era, as shown by the rounded contours of its bottom and by morainic hills which surround it and enclose it to the south. Its perimeter is 100 miles long and its deepest point is 372 meters. The position of the lake surrounded by Hills and mountains which protect it from the rigours of the north, creates an environment in which the warmth of the temperate climate is combined with the fresh air from the mountains.
How to reach the lakeAir
If you come to Italy by air and you land to the Malpensa airport, that's about 40 km southeast of the lake. You can take the bus for Gallarate and then the train for Arona/Stresa/Verbania.
