Feriolo, the Portofino of Lake Maggiore
LAKE MAGGIORE – Feriolo hasn’t got to be forgotten while visiting Lake Maggiore.
Like all other little villages overlooking the lake, Feriolo has its nice beaches, a lovely romantic dock and nice colourful houses.
But this village has something extra. This small town is located on the banks of the Borromeo Gulf, one of the best panoramic spots of Lake Maggiore. There are many tourists in the summer, but during the low season it reveals its quiet and romantic side.
If you come from Baveno and it’s nice weather Feriolo will appear to you on the right like a framed picture. It shows all its charm at sunset.
It’s beautiful to walk along the streets and stop in one of the cafés on the lake front for an aperitif.
It is for this reason that it’s called the Portofino of Lake Maggiore.
If instead you arrive in the morning I suggest you to hang around until lunch time so you can taste some lake specialities in one of the traditional restaurants like Ristorante Battello del Golfo, a boat of the Fifties, well restored, berthed to the river.
