BEAUTIFUL TOWNS AN SHORES
Of course Lake Maggiore has many beautiful towns on its shores, however the most beautiful town in our opinion is Pallanza (Verbania), within walking distance of Intra and we have chosen our accommodation here. Unlike many of the towns that circle the Lake, Pallanza is located on its own road and is set away from the main road that circuits Lake Maggiore so it has none of the through traffic that can affect other places.
This picturesque and tranquil town boasts a beautiful lakeside promenade stretching the length of the town set in beautiful gardens with marvelous views.
Pallanza is also is the perfect base to explore the lake and surrounding areas by boat as it is has its own lakeside ferry terminal which means no need to worry about hiring a car as you can travel anywhere on the Lake using the ferry system. Pallanza is also home to the famous Museo del Paesaggio, which is well worth a visit, a museum which displays many famous Landscapes of the area.
