Nature, sport, music, art
Stresa is situated in a breathtaking panoramic location, overlooking Lake Maggiore.
Its wonderful lakefront takes in views of the spectacular Borromean Islands and the snow-covered mountains while its lush vegetation in parks and gardens, and its mild climate, makes it one of the most famous resorts on Lake Maggiore.
Stresa also owes its international fame to its lively musical and cultural events, its huge choice of walking paths and excursions, and its wealth of works of art here and in the surrounding region.
The surrounding territory is a source of many emotions: they range from the majesty of Monte Rosa to the extraordinary architectural and cultural phenomenon represented by Sacro Monti (sacred mountains), which are Unesco heritage sites.
Stresa is very popular in summer, but is also splendid in spring and
autumn, when the clear light renders the colours much more vivid.
Stresa is easy to reach either by car, plane (Malpensa airport is very
close) or by train from many locations.
