Let’s get a couple of things straight: First, you don’t go to the Italian lakes to swim. Yes, you can swim in them, but the water is cold and this should not be the main point of one’s stay in this area. Second, the Italian lakes are most definitely not On Golden Pond. They are not rural, and they are not isolated. The Italian lakes are sophisticated, urbane resorts like Positano or Portofino, but on a lake rather than on the sea. They’re meant for scenery, shopping, strolling, breathing the air, enjoying the views. Now, which lake is “best”? Como is the most famous. It’s also the most difficult to get around in once you’re there, as the roads are narrower and much slower. Orta and Maggiore are just as beautiful and easier. Plus, they’re all so close to each other, you’ll be able to get a taste of them all no matter which particular one you choose as your base.
