Orta San Giulio ©
Orta San Giulio is a town and comune (municipality) in the Province of Novara in the Italian region of Piedmont, located about 100km northeast of Turin and about 40km northwest of Novara.The town itself is built on a promontory which juts out from the eastern bank of Lake Orta close to Isola San Giulio, an island which also falls within the municipal boundaries. Get a sense of the local culture at Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie and Parco della Rocca Borromea. Step off the beaten path and head to Varallo and Salumificio Maison Bertolin. Get out of town with these interesting Orta San Giulio side-trips: Castello di Verres (in Verres), Castello di Issogne (in Issogne) and Sacro Monte (in Varallo). The adventure continues: make a trip to Orrido di sant'anna, steep yourself in history at Sacro Monte di Orta, and take in the dramatic scenery at Cascata del Toce.

City of Magic

A city of technology and industry, Turin is in northwestern Italy, a one-hour drive from the French border and slightly more than that from the Mediterranean Sea.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Abbazia di Santa Maria di Staffarda and Castello Sarriod de La Tour. Visit Castello della Manta and Villa della Regina for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Santuario Basilica di Montis Regalis (in Vicoforte), Criptoportico Forense (in Aosta) and Castello Reale di Sarre (in Sarre). It doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Museo del Carcere Le Nuove and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.
