Isola dei Pescatori wheelchair accessible tours Lake Maggiore excursions

Isola dei Pescatori wheelchair accessible tours, is named after the activity of its inhabitants and it is also known as Isola Superiore.

No garden of immense size and baroque features here.

A silent place made fascinating by the whiteness of the small houses scattered here and there.

The ancient village once housed fishermen and still maintains the original architectural structure, on which the fish was left to dry.

While the Borromeo family was interested in building the family villa on Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori was owned by the Archbishop of Novara, who refused to sell it.

It is the only island of the Borromean Gulf to be inhabited, even if the number of tourists far exceeds that, about 50, of the residents.

Tourist destination during daylight hours, owned only by the islanders at night.

Isola dei Pescatori alternates more frenetic rhythms with what is the peace of the evening.

Walking through the alleys of Isola dei Pescatori is quite pleasant.

Time seems to have stopped and despite the tourists you can walk quietly.

Once disembarked here, you can visit the Church of San Vittore, whose bell tower makes the profile of the island recognizable from the mainland.

Touring Isola dei Pescatori

It has a size of 350 meters long by about a hundred wide, which is reduced in periods of high water.

These periods, generally during autumn and spring, due to the abundant rainfall, see the water level of Lake Maggiore rise.

That’s laps the streets of the Isola dei Pescatori, submerging the lakefront.

However, this does not cause problems for the houses that have been built here.

In fact the accesses are almost in all cases, on the mezzanine ( middle floor ) floors and on the internal streets.

The architecture of the houses is not accidental.

Many of these are two storey houses with large terraces, which were used ( and some still are ) to dry fish.

Walking through the quiet streets of the small village on Isola dei Pescatori on Lake Maggiore, you will be able to see the long balconies where freshly caught fish is traditionally dried.

The alleys are narrow and shaded as a result of the fact that the houses here are built on several floors, to take advantage of the limited space available.

On this small strip of land, life is slowly articulated between fishing and traditions.

The island also boasts excellent trattorias, a market and every year celebrates the folklore of the traditional August 15th, as well as the Carnival.
