Navigazione Laghi[dead link] provides ferry services to the Borromean Islands (Isola Bella, Isola dei Pescatori and Isola Madre). There are also water taxis – these are particularly useful after ferry hours, for example, if going or returning from dinner at a restaurant on Isola dei Pescatori or Isola Bella.
