After visiting and shopping in Luino, it is possible to reach the Castles of Cannero Riviera by a relaxing cruise. The Castles are located in front of Cannero Riviera on the Piedmont side of Lake Maggiore, a few kilometres from the Swiss border. The cruise doesn't include a stop, as it isn't possible for now to visit the ruins of the ancient fortifications, perched on two of the three rocky islets.
