Lake District Map and Information Italy

Lake District

lake districtIn far northern Italy on the fringes of Switzerland, Italy's magnificent Lake District is spectacular mountain scenery at its best, and the breathtaking beauty of this area is a magnet for tourists throughout the year. 

These cold mountain lakes were formed by retreating glaciers, and the largest include Lakes Como, Garda, Lugano and Maggiore; Lake Garda, 75 miles to the east, is not shown due to space restrictions. 

The lakes are fronted by varied ranges of the Alps, and dozens of colorful small towns dot the shorelines. A dependable ferry service shuffles passsengers from town to town, and the local roads are first-rate, so driving along the lakes in most areas is easy and safe.
