Hi there. I am planning 3 nights in Milan and then travelling by train to stay in Orta san Giulio in mid September. My wife and I love history, walking, visiting sights etc....we love the idea of walking around parts of the lake and hopping on and off boats to see places..... and I am wondering if there is enough to keep us in Orta san Giulio for 6 nights or if we should stay on one of the larger lakes. We do love the peace and quiet ...hence our attraction to Orta, but will there be enough to see on the lake using the ferries ? Also is it easy to get across to lake Maggiore ? I have heard there is a bus to Stresa, but how frequent is it and would it go early enough in the morning for us to enjoy a full day on lake Maggiore ? any thoughts please ?
