About this item

The magnificent northern Italian lakes need little introduction to travellers, blessed as they are with the Alps as their backdrop. Lakes Garda, Maggiore, Como and Iseo are hugely popular with English-speaking holidaymakers, thanks to their spectacular settings and surrounding wealth of elegant villas and gardens.

The 48 walks in this guide are single day walks, graded for difficulty from easy, pleasant strolls by the lakesides and through woodland, through to moderate and fairly strenuous treks on alpine terrain. The majority, however, are set at low-altitude.

There is a superb network of public transport in the area. Plenty of trains, buses, ferries and cable-cars are available to get around and to access walk starts and finishes easily. There are also excellent connections with the northern Italian airports at Milan, Bergamo, Verona, Treviso and Venice. The guide features recommended accommodation options and all the planning and background readers need.
