The Museo della Barca Lariana is the first one in Europe, as an example of the importance of the tradition as way to tell the territory. The museum hosts about 200 boats, 50 ship for fishing, 100 outboard motorboats for racing and hundreds of inboard motorboats for tourism. The most beautiful collection is of sailboats!
