To the tourist, who for the first time arrives in Stresa, a breathless sight is offered. In the beginning, a superb window of the lakefront, delineated with lines of palm trees, with flourishing gardens and facades of grand hotels. Then, turning to look at the lake, enchanted, as if emerging from the same waters the spectacular Borromean Islands (Isola Bella, Isola Madre, and Isola dei Pescatori).
It is enough the splendor of these visions to make one understand how Stresa has been able to become one of the maximum meetings of international tourism.
This guide covers the Lake Maggiore, and the town of Stresa in addition to the one-day trips you can make from one of these towns to the Borromean Islands, the Angera castle, Santa Caterina del Sasso, Locarno, Mottarone, Villa Taranto and the Centovalli railway. It also covers Nature Parks and Wilderness Areas near the lake.
