Description of offer

Departure in the early morning for Cannero Riviera, a town that rises between the lake and the mountain. The natural inlet that protects it from cold winds and the sunny position allow the unfolding of lush vegetation, rich in cedars, lemons, olive trees, orange trees, palms, azaleas, rhododendrons and very renowned camellias. Walking through its characteristic streets rich in history or on the lakeside you can enjoy an enchanting view of the lake, the castles of Cannero and the nearby Lombard side with the village of Luino. Visit of the historic center of this ancient village that presents in every corner historical and architectural traces of all merit. Free lunch. In the afternoon transfer to Ghiffa, a small village located on a small promontory on the western shore of Piedmont Lake Maggiore, from which it enjoys a fabulous view over a very wide stretch of lake. The very mild climate, the richness of the spontaneous vegetation and the polychrome of the gardens that surround the numerous villas make the stay in this town very pleasant. Visit to the Hat Museum. This eclectic museum space was created to tell the story of a craft that became art and a territory that became Italian excellence. In an environment that was part of the glorious Cappellificio Panizza complex, visitors can experience a unique and fascinating cultural experience. Authentic machinery and materials, photographic archives, rare videos, collections and prints, made available to let people know how from the rabbit hair human ingenuity came to make headgears destined to make history.
