How to travel to the Brissago Islands
The islands can be reached by boat from Porto Ronco or several other towns.
Via Porto Ronco
Porto Ronco is a village on Lake Maggiore between Ascona and the Italian border. It can be reached by bus and by car. There is limited parking in the village.
Boats operate quite frequently between Porto Ronco and the larger island.
Via other towns
You can also reach the island from many other towns on the lake via less frequent boats, e.g. from Locarno, Ascona and Brissago. Find information here.
Dates of operation
The island is open during day time, from April to November 2021 (during the season that the boats operate).
Find the boat schedules. The boat dock at the island is called 'Isole di Brissago', so fill that out as your destination.
