Maggiore, which means large in Italian, is true to its definition when used to describe and name the second largest lake that is nearest the Alps.
Lake Maggiore’s top villas
Lake Maggiore, whose beauty enamoured even the late great Ernest Hemingway, is featured in his novel A Farewell To Arms. Located in between the stunning Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy, with pockets of it extending into Switzerland’s Canton Ticino, Lake Maggiore is a beautiful blue bowl of pristine water encircled by grand snow-capped mountains. Its mild climate, exotic
