  • Clean water and a great frame! Worth visiting beautiful countries on its shores and make at least one bathroom in the summer!

  • Beautiful town with so much history and devotion. You get to Orta easily, the parking spaces are very well marked and wide. You go to discover this city full of history. The narrow streets surrounded by shops and workshops, invite you to go to carpirene every angle and view. From the main square you can see the island of San Giulio, can be reached by public transport. The boats ply every 15 minutes. The town's main piazza Motta, you reach l Sacromonte with its many chapels, dedicated to the life of Saint Francis of Assisi. From the square in front of the Church, a beautiful view of the Lake and the island of San Giulio, surely deserves more attention and not a tourism Orta hit and run. The peace and tranquility dominates the town.

  • A pleasant discovery, a Lake perhaps little known to mass tourism, but that embodies the ideals of a "human scale" that must be sought in a world in which privileges the overcrowding at the intrinsic quality.
