Its size (212.3km²), majestic, unspoilt beauty, and above all the Borromean islands in its centre make Lake Maggiore, with its deep blue waters, the most famous of Italy's Pre-Alpine lakes. Sheltered from the cold winds by the Alps and Pre-Alps, the area around the lake enjoys a constantly mild climate in which a luxuriant and exotic vegetation flourishes - and which is ideal for outdoor activities.
