DMC Lake Maggiore

Lago Maggiore Experience

In May 2018 we have planned a super event for an important Chinese corporation. Five days to discover Lake Maggiore and Milan…  funny activities, driving experiences, local delicious food, different entertainment opportunities and fun!
We proposed different funny and unusual activities for our guests’ requests developing a customized event that involved 110 people.

First we have organized the transfer from Milano Malpensa airport to Stresa for all the guests. Then check-in at the hotel and tiramisu cooking class in the afternoon, guests tried to cook an Italian dessert… Tiramisù! They also personalized their creations according to their personal preferences.
Buffet aperitif in the hotel garden surrounded by a magical and suggestive atmosphere, recreated thanks to music and classical dance entertainment. Then dinner at the hotel.

The second day the group leaves to discover the Borromean Islands with the old “Piemonte” boat, the oldest Italian steamer still in use. Cruise in the Borromean Gulf, where the charm of the old steamer and amazing panoramas impressed the guests.

 

On “Piemonte” boat jazz live music to entertain the guests. Three stops, one to admire the palace and the gardens of Isola Madre, an ice cream stop in Belgirate, a small village on the shores of the lake where there was a dedicated “carretto ice cream” and a stop in Isola Bella.

Exclusive visit of palace and gardens of Isola Bella with medieval guides… Ten actors recreated an ancient atmosphere between the palace rooms and the gardens, also telling the stories of these places. Then exclusive aperitif in the garden. Charming dinner at RistoLoungeElvezia on Isola Bella with soprano, tenor and wind orchestra.

For the third day we have organized a vintage driving experience from Lake Maggiore to Lake Orta, our guests tried the emotion of driving Italian vintage cars surrounded by amazing landscapes and incredible sights. During the journey the group stopped at Alpinia Botanical Garden, a natural balcony that overlooks Lake Maggiore and offers its visitors an incredible view.

Lunch in a particular restaurant on Lake Orta and, in the afternoon, boat transfer to San Giulio island, the little jewel of this lake. Then visit of the Holy Mount in Orta, UNESCO heritage, from which people can admire Lake Orta from a different perspective.
Apericena at the exclusive Sky Bar of Hotel la Palma in Stresa, where an acrobatic barman entertained the guests creating particular cocktails.

For the fourth day we have planned a day trip to Milan. Exclusive visit of the city on board of historical tram, lunch in a prestigious restaurant in the city centre and visit of Duomo and La Scala Theatre. In the evening dinner on Isola Pescatori with music entertainment.

The fifth day was dedicated to a bike experience on Mottarone Mount, the Mountain of 7 lakes… lunch at the top and descent on off-road paths until Stresa… real adrenaline and emotion! For people that didn’t want to cycle and preferred something else we have organized a visit of Villa Taranto botanical gardens with a special guide.

In the evening gala dinner in a starred restaurant overlooking Lake Mergozzo. A spectacular party evening… risotto show cooking, aperitif with the harpist, dinner with local products of Lake Maggiore and Ossola’s Valleys and funny photo booth! Then music and dance show “Pandora and lighting butterflies” that excited and fascinated all the guests… leaving fantastic memories of these days on Lake Maggiore!
