Escorted Rail Tours to Baveno
Cruise spectacular Lake Maggiore
The delightful town of Baveno enjoys an enviable location on the
western shore of Lake Maggiore. Amongst its highlights is the
flower-filled promenade with wonderful views out to the Borromean
Islands. In the early 19th century, the town began to attract
tourists, many of whom stayed in some of the illustrious villas
built by the Lombard aristocracy.
Before long many of Europe's wealthiest families were spending
their summers here, with Queen Victoria and Sir Winston Churchill
among them. Today, Baveno is a pretty town with much to recommend
it, and with easy access to many attractions along and around the
lakeside, it is a great base from which to explore Maggiore.
