This was fabulous.
You first take a boat journey from stresa (you can pick the boat up at different places) to Locarno in Switzerland. This takes about 3.5 hours and the scenery is breathtaking.

My wife and I did this trip 2 weeks ago, starting from Baveno by train, and then changing for the narrow gauge train at Domodossola to Locarno, and then boat back from Locarno to Baveno. It is a full day out, and therefore good value...More
