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 Salumificio Maison Bertolin. Get out of town with these interesting Orta San Giulio side-trips: Sacro Monte (in Varallo), Castello di Verres (in Verres) and Cascata del Toce (in Formazza). The adventure continues: make a trip to Orrido di sant'anna and steep yourself in history at Sacro Monte di Orta.
