Nice place with a few restaurants and bars (sitting outside), during summer season cultural happenings, boat jetty for all places on the lake. A bit crowded at lunch time due to day tourists, but especially lovely late afternoon and evenings

Great place to spend some time having a meal, glass of wine or capuccino and watch the world go by. The place to catch a ferry and just a beautiful place to go.

This has to be one of the prettiest places in all of the Italian lakes, sat on the crystal clear water of the lake, kick back, get an ice cream and relax.
