LAKE MAGGIORE, LAKE LUGANO, LAKE ORTA: The northern tip of Lake Maggiore lies in Switzerland with two important towns, Locarno and Ascona. Lake Lugano is smaller than both Lake Como and Lake Maggiore, and has a bridge over the lake that connects the towns of Melide and Bisonne. Most of Lake Lugano is in Switzerland. The main city on the lake is Lugano, which is a modern, trendy city but still with Italian culture. At the eastern end of the lake which is all in Italy, Porlezza is the main town sitting at the extreme east end. Italys' lakes lie in a series of long, deep valleys running down onto the plains from the Alps, Lake Maggiore perhaps being the most elegant. Lake Orta, only a mile wide, west of Lake Maggiore, is a quieter area of Italy's lakes.
