We were just here for a day trip and such a peaceful place. We wandered the streets of San Giulio de Orta, bought some porcini, had a coffee by the lake.
We had taken the little tourist train down from the car park, and walked...More
Everyone seems to rush to Lakes Garda, Maggiore, and Como, and never see this little gem. It is serene and with some exceptions, avoids the bustle of the other lakes. Perhaps because it's smaller with fewer resorts. But if you are in the lake district,...More
A very pretty and interesting lake with the lovely Isla and the town of Orta the highlights, easily traversed using the Lake ferry service which serves all the main points of interest. Orta is a very pretty little town with plenty of restaurants at reasonable...More
I've been to Italy many times and have yet to find a region I don't like. Lake Orta is special. There isn't a great deal to do so 4 days is enough, but you'll have a fantastic 4 days. Peaceful, wonderful scenery as you catch...More
This is a scenic nature lake. There are pathways along the road and lake where you can stroll into the town. Numerous restaurants and shops to amble through. So picturesque and the locals are very welcoming. Wonderful area. Numerous churches with lovely frescoes.
My boyfriend and I spent two days at Lake Orta at the end of September. Needless to say we fell in love with it! It's an absolutely beautiful very little town right on the lake, extremely peaceful and ideal to relax. Cars are only allowed...More

Hi, thank you for your question. I presume you are considering to take this trip from Stresa which is closest. A Taxi usually is very expensive compared to a rental car. What is more, a rental you take and can use for the entire day. The taxi will bring you there, pick you up upon your specific request and wil cost you a lot of money. Enquire into car rental fares (Maggiore is an Italian company with reasonable fares) before you hire a taxi. Cheers, Duschan
