Stresa ©
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. Go for a jaunt from Stresa to Verbania to see Lago Maggiore about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Palazzo Borromeo, head off the coast to Isola Madre, meet the residents at Park Pallavicino, and pause for some photo ops at Statue of San Carlone.

Before you visit Stresa, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

New Delhi, India to Stresa is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4.5 hours traveling from New Delhi to Stresa. When traveling from New Delhi in November, plan for colder days in Stresa, with highs around 15°C, while nights are slightly colder with lows around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Locarno.
