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. Bring the kids along to Island of the Fishermen (Isola dei Pescatori) and Park Pallavicino. Take a break from the city and head to Isola Bella and Isola Madre. Explore Stresa's surroundings by going to Rocca Borromeo (in Angera) and Le Serenelle (in Luino). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Palazzo Borromeo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa Santi Ambrogio e Theodolo, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens Of Villa Taranto, and don't miss a visit to Parco della Rocca Borromea.
