Stresa - lake trip

We will be in Stresa for 2 nights in early October. (A Thursday will be our full day there.) Would love to go up the Mottarone funivia and also do a boat tour around the Borromean Islands. Can anyone advise on must see islands or recommended trips for 1/2 day?

thank you

PS Any other "must sees" in Stresa - big things or quirky little things.

The 3 islands are all different but I would probably go for Isole Madre if time was limited. Don't bother going up in the cable car unless it is a perfectly clear day.

thank you

would you recommend just the normal ferry? Or a particular tour operator?

Just get the main ferry from the pier near the square - you can then come and go as you please.
