We took the cruise to Isole di Brissago from Ascona and then on to Locarno, and it was the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. The cruise stopped at several small villages, so we were able to get some sense of the towns along the shoreline. The island was glorious in its summer colors. We spent about an hour and a half strolling around the island. There is a restaurant in the villa, but, unfortunately, we did not try it as we'd had a huge lunch in the grotto in Ascona. After we got back on the boat, we stopped at several more villages before arriving in Locarno.

The weather was hot and humid, but out on the lake it was glorious. This is a wonderful way to get a sense of the Swiss part of Lake Maggiore. The Swiss Pass is not valid on the lake, and there is admission to the island gardens, but it was well worth the price. Buono!

Busy large Sunday market alongside the lake, accessible by boat or car. Clothing, food, leather goods, jewellery etc. Worth a visit.
