Isola dei Pescatori, also known as Isola Superiore, is without doubt the most picturesque of the island that make up the Borromeo archipelago, as well as being the only permanently inhabited island in the gulf.
Its compact, ancient village places the island in a distant world from another time, one in which romantic sophistication is the order of the day.
The narrow streets and alleys feature typical island houses with their red tiled roofs and the long balconies that were once used by the fishermen for drying the fish caught in the clear waters of Lake Maggiore.
The unmistakeable profile of the island is characterised by the pointed bell tower of the Church of San Vittore, a national monument of immense cultural and historical value. It is impossible to describe the appeal of this island, the atmosphere you breath as you explore its hidden secrets and its shores occupied by its residents' boats. The setting is all the more evocative in the evening when the moon is reflected in the lake and the island sparkles, creating a truly unique spectacle.
The Albergo Verbano is proud to be a part of this magic that year after year, season after season, delights tourists and travellers, offering them fabulous moments to be carefully preserved in the album of their most precious memories.
