A perfect spot for meditation. It offers walking trails across the island, surrounded by olive tree, and nice panoramic spots to look over the lake and surroundings.

First visited this little island 18 years ago on honeymoon so took our kids back for old times sake.

They were desperate to swim and for this reason we were disappointed. We had enquired and believed there was a stony beach access which there was but it was dirty with no running water.

Glad we went for the boat trip and the experience of another side of Italy but were keen to get back to a clean pool!

We went on what was written place where they made lace, grand house and so on. Massive disappointment. When you arrive by boat your immediately hit by market stalls selling tat you could buy in any market all over the world. The main event the house was closed which meant the best part of half the island was closed to the public. So apart from revolting toilets and tat there is nothing else there. You would be better of going on party boat or something around the island and back to land. Couldn't even say much for.the scenery as most was obscured and overgrown so you saw trees and the path you were on. You could see it all in ten mins get some pics and your off

This small island is well worth a short visit to enjoy its tranquil environment and the ubiquitous gelato.
Be careful. We were late getting to the ferry and with great aplomb the ticket seller sold me two unlimited travel tickets for €25 instead of two return tickets at €15. Not a lot of money but it was annoying.

Worth the ferry trip - harbour, street, cafes, restaurants, lakeside walks.
Best in sunshine
The toilets are behind the tourist info
Watch the times for the return ferry - unlike some of Italy they do follow a timetable.
