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. Get a sense of the local culture at Palazzo Borromeo and Isola Madre. Visit Isola Bella and Parco della Rocca Borromea for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Stresa: Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Rocca Borromeo (in Angera). There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Park Pallavicino, appreciate the history behind Statue of San Carlone, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa Santi Ambrogio e Theodolo, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens Of Villa Taranto.
