It has a perimeter of about 200 km, a length of 65 km and an average width of about 4 km. A great deal has been said and written about Lake Maggiore. Stendhal himself, struck by that sort of lyrical rhapsody that occurs only in the sight of miracles of nature, said that here he had discovered the place that he would have preferred never to have left.
