Want CHEAP, FAST & DIRECT bus transport to Lake Maggiore? Use ALIBUS! Lv Malpensa airport every 2 hours, directly to Lake Maggiore avoids a stop/transfer in Milano. Fast, 1-1.5 hr long. It’s cheaper and more direct than a train or limo! Even locals use it.

Beautiful Lane a surrounding villages. Defiantly worth taking the ferry around the lake to the different villages, affordable and enjoyable. Lots to see and nice to hope on and off to explore. The ferry ran fairly frequently but it is best to check departure times...More

The ferry services on the lake are frequent and good value. This trip stops at Cannero on the way. We spent about four hours here exploring the streets of the old town and having lunch then a walk along the foreshore with a good play...More
