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. Visiting Isola Bella and Island of the Fishermen (Isola dei Pescatori) will get you outdoors. Explore Stresa's surroundings by going to Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Le Serenelle (in Luino). There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, get to know the resident critters at Park Pallavicino, head off the coast to Isole Borromee, and contemplate the long history of Parco della Rocca Borromea.

To see ratings, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, use the Stresa trip planner.
