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. Take a break from the city and head to Riserva Naturale Speciale del Sacro Monte della SS. Trinita and Oasi della Bruschera. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Spiaggia di Cerro and Guree Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Lungolago di Cerro (in Laveno-Mombello), Lago Maggiore (in Verbania) and Angera (Collina di San Quirico, Distilleria Rossi d’Angera, &more). There's lots more to do: view the masterpieces at Palazzo Borromeo, look for all kinds of wild species at Riserva Naturale Speciale di Fondotoce, step off the mainland to explore Isola Madre, and appreciate the history behind Statue of San Carlone.
