Create an itinerary including Lake Orta
Lake Orta is dotted with romantic buildings that are reflected in the water. The lake's cool, clean waters are likely what's left of a retreating glacier. Walk along the lake's shores and find activities both on and off the water. Travel to the southern or northern end of the lake by train. You can stay in hotels in either area. Arrange to visit Lake Orta and other attractions in Orta San Giulio using our Orta San Giulio trip planner.

  • Booked a coach trip from Stressa to Lake Orta (via Arona) 41 Euros each. Well worth it! Guide Mateo was excellent. You must go over to the island whilst in Orta (boat 4.50euro return). Free entry...

  • Lovely lake, quite large, cleanest apparently in Italy. Hire a boat, visit the Little Island. Towns dotted around. Sail, row, canoe, swim, endless opportunities.
