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.

One of the most beautiful places of northern Italy. Have a stroll along the lake. Enjoy some good food at the Michelin stared restaurant. Take a boat to the island. This lake, town and island is really worth a visit. Small enough so you can park your car on the hill and have a walk down to the old town.
