Lake Maggiore Holidays

Lake Maggiore is Italy's second biggest lake next to Lake Garda. Lake Maggiore is special in that it traverses through two countries. The northern tip of Lake Maggiore is in Switzerland, hence it is only on Lake Maggiore that you can land up in another country on a ferry and hence keeping your passports ready might be a good idea after all. In Italy, Lake Maggiore is the acting water boundary between regions of Lombardy and Piedmont. Lake Maggiore or Lago Maggiore is also known as Verbano in Italy. Like all other Italian lakes, Lake Maggiore is also very charming and picturesque and extends a more natural experience than the others.

Fanciful Lake Maggiore

Lake Maggiore with is length of 68km and breadth of 3 to 5km is a large lake whose surface extent is next only to Lake Garda. Lake Maggiore is a deep sea with height of 193 metres above sea level and a depth of 179 metres below sea level. The sinuous Lake Maggiore is mysterious and does not extend a comprehensive view of its surface at a single glance from anywhere. This aspect increases the scenery variety fringing Lake Maggiore in its existence. The upper end of Lake Maggiore is surrounded by alpine vegetation while the middle region offer hills which are gentler tapering to the plains of Lombardy at its southern end. Lake Maggiore has many interesting towns on its shoreline which play host to tourists from all over the world throughout the year.

General Etiquette in Lake Maggiore

Similar to all Italian destinations, locals here in Lake Maggiore too greet each other by kisses on the cheeks which might seem a bit uncalled for by foreign tourists. Nevertheless, Italians do offer their hand while greeting foreign tourists. An elementary knowledge of Italian would prove useful but Lake Maggiore is tourist friendly and English can get you whatever is needed even though a long conversation might not make the list in Lake Maggiore.
