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 discover tucked-away gems like Chiesa di San Vittore and Santuario della Madonna della Riva. Escape the urban bustle at Boat Tours & Water Sports and Isola Madre. Explore Stresa's surroundings by going to Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Rocca Borromeo (in Angera). Next up on the itinerary: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, head off the coast to Isole Borromee, steep yourself in history at Parco della Rocca Borromea, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Chiesa di Madonna di Campagna.
