Castelli di Cannero

One of Lake Maggiore’s most iconic sights, the Castelli di Cannero (Castles of Cannero) appear to majestically rise from the lake’s waters, giving the impression of floating. Positioned close to the shore of the Cannero Riviera, these fascinating ruins were once part of the Rocca Vitaliana, a fortress built to defend the land from Swiss invasions. While the ruins cannot be toured, they still remain a compelling attraction to view from the shore or by boat.  Many tourist information points around Lake Maggiore detail the rich history of the Castelli and a range of rental boats and tours will enable you to tour and engage with the Castelli di Cannero’s past simultaneously.
