Laveno Mombello, Laveno
Laveno is the seat of municipality of Laveno Mombello, a small town on the shore of Lake Maggiore. The village is at the foot of Sasso del Ferro mountain, from the top of which the panoramic view embraces the whole valley of Verbania. It has therefore a natural vocation to welcome visitors, who are attracted above all by its natural treasures. A walk around Laveno, for example, on the mule track which goes up Monte Sasso del Ferro as far as the hamlet of the Casere, will certainly be gratifying for keen hikers, while for those prefering a comfortable journey, there is a cable car which in a few minutes takes you from Lake Maggiore to the top of Monte Sasso. Another excellent occasion to admire its territory is of course by observing it from the lake. There are several and frequent ferry-boats which leave for the most important tourist resorts in the region as well as the Piedmontese shore of the lake.
