Stresa

— 4 nights
Stresa is a town and comune of about 5,000 residents on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, about 90km northwest of Milan. Venture out of the city with trips to Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Angera (Distilleria Rossi d’Angera, Rocca Borromeo, &more). The adventure continues: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, appreciate the history behind Statue of San Carlone, step off the mainland to explore Isola Bella, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Isola Madre.

For where to stay, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Stresa travel planning tool.

Venice to Stresa is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or fly. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in September, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) to allow time to drive back home.
