The stunning town of Stresa is one of the most beautiful and frequently-visited tourist locations in
northern Italy and on Lake Maggiore.
Stresa is located on the western shore of Lake Maggiore, in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, in
Piedmont. This enchanting lake-side hamlet has around five thousand inhabitants and is set within a
unique landscape: Stresa offers excellent views of the Alps and the whole commune overlooks Lake
Maggiore, which is home to the celebrated Borromean Islands.
The lakeside, which is perfect for a relaxing stroll, is flanked by historic dwellings and luxurious
hotels in a Liberty style, set within a green landscape. Meeting points in Stresa include Piazza
dell’Imbarcadero and Piazza Marconi, both of which are lively and bustling.
