Lake Maggiore Express

Set off on an enchanting journey

Whether the day is warm and sunny or cool and wet, the Lago Maggiore Express is an experience that always offers a certain charm. Perhaps because all you have to do is climb aboard and let yourself follow the flow of your thoughts and the relaxed pace of a journey that starts just a stone’s throw from your hotel and ends at the station. Embarking in Stresa, the Lago Maggiore Express will take you to the northern end of the lake, passing Baveno, Intra, Cannobio and Ascona along the way, with the opportunity to enjoy lunch in the ferry’s restaurant. Once you arrive in Locarno, you leave the waters of Lake Maggiore to board the Centovalli train. What makes this such a popular attraction is the beauty of the scenery it passes through and its leisurely pace, tailor-made for taking in the full beauty of the surroundings. Your journey on the Lago Maggiore Express ends at the Domodossola station, where another train will take you back to Stresa in just a few minutes.
