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. Step off the beaten path and head to Lungolago Stresa and San Vittore Martire. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Chiesa di San Vittore and Piccolo Cimitero. Venture out of the city with trips to Cittiglio (Pista Ciclo-Pedonale Cittiglio - Laveno Mombello, Monte Nudo, &more), Laveno-Mombello (Presepe Sommerso, Spiaggia di Cerro, &more) and Chiesa di San Clemente (in Cesara). Next up on the itinerary: stop by La Cambusa, admire the striking features of Borromeo Palace, pause for some serene contemplation at Chiesa Santi Ambrogio e Theodolo, and take in the pleasant sights at Vetta di Mottarone.

For other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Stresa day trip planning website .
