Lake Orta, Orta San Giulio

4.8
#1 of 68 in Nature in Piedmont
Lake Orta is dotted with romantic buildings that are reflected in the water. The lake's cool, clean waters are likely what's left of a retreating glacier. Walk along the lake's shores and find activities both on and off the water. Travel to the southern or northern end of the lake by train. You can stay in hotels in either area.

  • We were on the Lake Orta and Orta San Giulio to precision. the Lake is really beautiful. private and quiet, yet on a human scale, though now is part of the tourist circuits. the glance is amazing (for example the Church of "Madonna del Sasso" over at Pella). You can read the entire Lake framed by the surrounding mountains. Orta San Giulio is a beautiful country, with a nice walk on the Lake and SORE POINT with CAR PARKS CARISSIMI (2 hours/10 euro per day).
