“Island, Sacromonte, village San Giulio, Orta Lake: a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

We went there by car coming from Lugano/Switzerland. It took us about 2 hours to reach San Giulio. We slept in San Giulio (very nice village) extremely typical. With a small boat we went to the island where there is a monastery. To the Sacromonte we walked up from the lakeside. Whoever is on vacation around Lake Maggiore (Stresa/Verbania/Locarno) it is a must to invest 1 or 2 days for the region of Lake Orta. Food and drinks are cheaper than in the big towns such as Milan/Varese/Como/etc.
Go there without any hesitation.
