Today we explore Lake Orta and one of northern Italy’s best kept secrets its capital, Orta San Giulio, which has a delightful medieval centre full of cobbled streets, galleries, local crafts and cafés.
Today we enjoy a full day excursion with a scenic journey on the magical Lake Maggiore Express by rail and boat, taking in the full beauty of this spectacular region along the way. We start with a rail journey from Stresa to Domodossola, at which point we change onto the scenic high level railway, the Centovalli, which takes us through the mountains and down to Locarno, a bustling town on the Swiss shores of Lake Maggiore. After enjoying the fabulous views en route, we have time to relax before taking a boat ride from this Swiss corner of Lake Maggiore back down to Stresa.
We enjoy a three lake tour today. First, we head up the scenic west coast of Lake Maggiore with a coffee stop in Locarno, just over the Swiss border. From here we continue to the stylish city of Lugano and enjoy free time for lunch on the shores of this elegant lake. In the afternoon, we return to Italy and arrive on renowned Lake Como. There’s time to explore the attractive streets of Como itself before we make our way back to Stresa.
After breakfast, we begin our journey home via an overnight stop in Dijon.
