|The Lakes of Northern Italy
The lakes of the North, at the foot of the
majestically mountain chain of the Alps, are mainly of glacial origin.
Among these are Lake Garda (the
largest lake in Italy), Lake Como
(the deepest), Lake Maggiore, Lake Iseo and Lake
Orta. The environment around these lakes is mostly alpine, and is ideal
for winter holidays, thanks to the mitigating action of the waters and the presence of the mountains.
