Orta San Giulio

— 3 nights
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 Castello di Issogne. Step off the beaten path and head to Varallo and Orrido di sant'anna. Get out of town with these interesting Orta San Giulio side-trips: Sacro Monte (in Varallo), Castello di Verres (in Verres) and Salumificio Maison Bertolin (in Arnad). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Parco della Rocca Borromea, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sacro Monte di Orta, and admire the sheer force of Cascata del Toce.

Venture out of the city with trips to River Rafting & Tubing (in La Salle), Criptoportico Forense (in Aosta) and Santuario Basilica di Montis Regalis (in Vicoforte).
