Advance information - Summer 2022


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
* - except for the emergency Coronavirus special sailings in August 2020

This year the re-built MPV G Zanardelli is to only operate "charter" and the occasional "special" cruises - details to be included on this website if and when advised to me

In consequence MPV Italia is again be based at Riva for the peak-summer period
and normally operate sailings from Riva and Limone to Malcesine

In 2021 it is again be possible to make a full-length sailing from the southern end
of the lake by using the early-morning hydrofoil/cataraman to Limone
before returning on the last southbound hydrofoil/cataraman services
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
