  • Rocca di Angera is one of those destinations "iconic" you can't lose: turns to history, romance, scenography, representativeness. It is a few km from Milan, overlooking Lake Maggiore and on clear days allows a breathtaking view of Lake and mountains. You can eat or get married and then go down to a lakeside promenade always in the Sun and sheltered from the Northern winds.

  • Dominant position fantastic, spectacular view, well kept and beautiful historical evidence. To see, too bad it's a bit pricey admission ... in the family is expensive!

  • For years, who occasionally step wandering around its walls, and inside the show is great, both for the exhibition of dolls for both what you see behind the walls, and the breathtaking spectacle is lovely
