Lake Tours and Water Taxi
An alternative to the public boats it to hire a water taxi with a driver. They can be hired by the hour, for half day or a full day depending on what you want to see. Since a private tour is a tailor-made one, for specific itineraries, contact private boat companies direct.

You may wish to enhance your visit and find out more about the history of the places you see and “bring them to life” by engaging the services of a qualified local guide.
Italy has a strict licensing policy and in order to qualify as a local guide, examinations are held annually. Examinees sit a written examination in Italian on the history, art and culture of a specific area followed by an oral examination both in Italian and in their chosen foreign language.
