The four islands

The ferry leaving Isola Bella, part of the Borromean Islands on Lake Maggiore, Italy

The Borromean Islands are made up of four main islands, Isola Bella, Isola Madre, Isola del Pescatori (also known as Superiore), Isolino di San Giovanni and one tiny uninhabited rock of Isola La Malghera

These islands are certainly worthy of a visit but the ferry’s can become very busy.  I advise starting out as early as you can.  This way it is more relaxing and if you have a bit of spare time later why not treat yourself to an aperol sprtiz.
