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 Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Angera (Distilleria Rossi d’Angera & Rocca Borromeo). There's much more to do: look for gifts at Profumo di Stresa, head off the coast to Isola Bella, don't miss a visit to Parco della Rocca Borromea, and get great views at Alpyland Mottarone.
