“This is an exceptional world heritage site set in magnificent gardens containing 20 chapels dedicated to the life of Saint Francis with frescoes and statues dating back to the late 1500s and early 1600s.”
“Sacro Monte di Orta is definately worth a visit, walking around the Unesco heritage sacred site and looking at the twenty chapels dedicated to episodes of the life of Saint Francis of Assisi is really something.”
“Santa Maria is in the most wonderful location, you walk up the hill and stop for a breath, turn around and the view takes your breath away and then take the little road to the right and continue up to Sacre Monte....”
“Access from the town square is by steep steps I found these easy to climb the secret is to stop halfway and look back at the stunning views of the lake .”
“For a more relaxing time go for a hike on one of the many trails and you will be rewarded with amazing views, some solitude and it will keep your ticker beating a little faster as you climb up and down the slopes.”
“... - we were blessed with cows grazing at the topl, with swiss bells gently strumming as they moved - view and music together is a rare treat Get a view on Monte Rosa - highest in Italy and 2nd highest in Europe ...”
