Lake Maggiore is situated at 194 meters height above sea level, and reaches the maximum depth of 380 meters in front of the village of Cannero. In its waters we find eleven islands, including the famous and beautiful Borromean Islands, in the arm of the lake called Gulf Borromeo, opposing Stresa and Pallanza, the Brissago Islands, in the Swiss side of Lake Maggiore and the Castelli di Cannero, three rocky islets where there are the ruins of ancient fortifications.
