About
The Madre Island hosts one of the oldest botanical gardens in Italy. On the Isola Bella you can visit the sumptuous palace, home of the Borromeo family, which preserves priceless works of art. The Pescatori island, on the other hand, is the only one of the Borromean islands to be inhabited throughout the year, and houses a small village characterized by a small square surrounded by narrow and winding alleys.

Veloce e non esoso

Partenza dal porto ogni mezz'ora / ora dipende dall'affluenza. Meglio prenderlo al mattino presto per poter godere a pieno dell'esperienza delle tre isole Borromee

Isole bellissime e trasporto efficiente
Sep. 2021
Abbiano passato una bellissima giornata scoprendo questi gioielli sul Lago Maggiore, il servizio di navigazione è stato valido, le code non ci sono mai state nè agli imbarchi nè alle biglietterie delle isole. Navette puntuali e capitani molto gentili.

I motoscafi erano eleganti e confortevoli, le corse erano frequentissime e il personale era molto educato, professionale e intento a svolgere il proprio lavoro con passione ed entusiasmo.
Lo consiglio vivamente!

Servizio rapido senza pensieri
Sep. 2020
Abbiamo acquistato il biglietto direttamente online ed appena arrivati al molo siamo stati imbarcati, valido servizio per muoversi senza stress tra un'isola e l'altra.
Abbiamo apprezzato il fatto che nonostante non ci fossero limitazioni i capitani non riempivano mai le imbarcazioni per favorire un certo distanziamento tra i passeggeri; presenza di mascherine a bordo e gel, cose da apprezzare in questi tempi.

Bella domenica alle isole
Jul. 2020
Servizio puntuale ed efficiente, hanno rispettato gli orari in tutte le isole.
Le isole sono davvero belle, ci è piaciuta tanto l'isola Madre, ci avevano già informato alla biglietteria che avremmo dovuto pagare un biglietto d'ingresso ma ne è valsa davvero la pena!
Grazie per la bella domenica passata sul lago, dopo tutti questi giorni in casa ci voleva proprio!

BELLISSIME LE TRE ISOLE BORROMEE DEL LAGO MAGGIORE
Oct. 2019
Tour delle tre Isole Borromee del Lago Maggiore, l'Isola dei Pescatori, l'Isola Bella e l'Isola Madre, indispensabile visitarle quando siamo al Lago Maggiore, rappresentano la storia, la cultura e le abitudini del luogo, una diversa dall'altra.

Boottocht met de veerdienst
Wij vertrokken vanuit Porto Valtravaglia met de veerdienst naar Isola Mare. Het is een snelle vleugelboot dus we stonden in 20 minuten op Isola Madre. We wilden daarna nog naar Isola Bella dus kochten de tickets op de boot. We hadden al combinatie tickets voor deze eilanden gekocht dus het betrof alleen de kosten voor de overtochten. We waren €34,50 p.p. kwijt. Het is belangrijk om even op te letten dat je bij de steiger vd veerdienst gaat staan. Dat zijn de steigers met ijzeren palen met daarop de naam van de plaats. De veerdienst vanaf het eiland gaat elk half uur. Laatste afvaart voor ons vanaf Isola Bella was 16.58 uur. De mensen van de maatschappij zijn allemaal erg behulpzaam. De snelle boot vaart alleen om aan 't begin vd dag weg te brengen en aan 't eind vd dag weer op te halen. Tussen de eilandjes varen andere boten vd maatschappij. Al met al goed geregeld. Je kunt met de pin betalen aan boord en krijgt een bon die je bij elke overtocht moet laten zien.
