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.

There's much more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, stroll around Park Pallavicino, don't miss a visit to Alpyland Mottarone, and step off the mainland to explore Isola Bella.
