Welcome to Isola Superiore (Isola dei Pescatori)
Tiny ‘Fishermen’s Island’, with a permanent population of around 50, retains much of its original fishing-village atmosphere. Apart from an 11th-century apse and a 16th-century fresco in the charming Chiesa di San Vittore, there are no real sights. Many visitors make it their port of call for lunch, but stay overnight and you'll fall in love with the place. Restaurants cluster around the boat landing, all serving grilled fish fresh from the lake (from €17). On some days in spring and autumn, heavy rain can lift the lake’s level a fraction, causing minor flooding on the island. The houses are built with this in mind, with entrance stairs facing internal streets, and they’re high enough to prevent water entering the houses.
