Advance information - Summer 2019

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 were advertised in the official NLG timetable to be operated
by either of the two Motor Paddle Vessels

That year MPV G Zanardelli was undertaking a major re-build

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

In 2018 it was 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 - it is expected similar connections will fit in with MPV G Zanardelli this year

Sadly, official information about future public sailings by the MPVsis difficult to find
(even locally) - but it is always worth asking the staff at you local pier !

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
