For centuries, the Italian Lakes have played muse to some of the world’s greatest literary luminaries. For Hemingway, it was magnificent Lake Maggiore that inspired his Farewell to Arms, long after the enchantment of Lake Como had fed Shelley's romantic soul. Poet Lady Mary Wortley Montagu and French novelist George Sand both lavished words on the beauty of Lovere on Lake Iseo, and D.H. Lawrence immortalised the grandeur of Lake Garda. Beyond the drama of their setting, the splendour of their gardens and the hidden charms of their islands, the Italian Lakes are more than the mere sum of their parts. They feed the souls of poets, the canvases of artists, the pages of writers and the imaginations of all who experience them.
