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. Venture out of the city with trips to Abbazia Di San Donato (in Sesto Calende), Angera (Distilleria Rossi d’Angera & Rocca Borromeo) and Museo Gottard Park (in Castelletto sopra Ticino). There's still lots to do: view the masterpieces at Palazzo Borromeo, pause for some photo ops at Statue of San Carlone, pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa di San Vittore, and walk around Park Pallavicino.
