Advance information - Summer 2018

Since the end of the 2001 season (when there were special afternoon cruises by MPV Italia
as well as MPV G Zanardelli operating timetabled sailings out of Desenzano)
the two motor paddle vessels are rarely advertised to operate public timetabled sailings

Once again in 2018 no sailings are advertised in the official NLG timetable to be operated
by either of the two Motor Paddle Vessels

This year MPV G Zanardelli is undertaking a major re-build

In consequence sister MPV Italia will be based at Riva instead and normally operate the sailings from Riva to Malcesine as shown below during the peak-summer - but always on a non-advertised basis and SUBJECT TO ANY PRIVATE CHARTER or other operational reason

In 2018 it will again be possible to make a full-length sailing from the southern end of the lake by using the hydrofoil/cataraman service as far as Limone to connect into MPV Italia
Sadly, official information about future public sailings is difficult to find (even locally)

Please e-mail me if you see either motor paddle vessel in service so the information
can be posted for the benefit of other visitors to this website
