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. Explore Stresa's surroundings by going to Lago Maggiore (in Verbania), Rocca Borromeo (in Angera) and Orrido di sant'anna (in Cannobio). There's much more to do: view the masterpieces at Palazzo Borromeo, go for a walk through Vetta di Mottarone, step off the mainland to explore Isola Madre, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Park Pallavicino.

For where to stay, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, read Stresa trip maker website.

Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Take a break from Locarno with a short trip to Cardada in Orselina, about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: cool off at Lido Locarno, don't miss a visit to Piazza Grande, get outside with Indepth Outthere Adventures, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta.
