Arona is a town and comune on Lake Maggiore, in the province of Novara . Its main economic activity is tourism, especially from Milan, France and Germany.HistoryArchaeological findings have shown that the area of what today is Arona was settled from the 18th - 13th centuries BC. Later it was a possession of the Celts, the Romans and the Lombards.In the 11th century the Benedictine abbey of Saints Gratianus and Felinus, Martyrs, was founded.After the siege and destruction of Milan in 1162 by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa, many of the exiled took refuge in Arona.Later the city was a possession of the Torriani and (from 1277) of the Visconti families. In the early 14th century the city became a free commune under the suzerainty of the abbey. In 1439 it was acquired by Vitaliano Borromeo and, as a result, the House of Borromeo.
