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. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Stresa: Lago Maggiore (in Verbania), Rocca Borromeo (in Angera) and Gottard Park (in Castelletto sopra Ticino). There's lots more to do: view the masterpieces at Palazzo Borromeo, steep yourself in history at Parco della Rocca Borromea, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa Santi Ambrogio e Theodolo, and get great views at Alpyland Mottarone.

To find reviews, ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Stresa trip tool.

New Delhi, India to Stresa is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Stresa due to the time zone difference.
