Situated on the hill above town you can either hike it or take the car - we visited on a Sunday afternoon and parking was a problem although I did just manage to squeeze into a spot. There's great views up and down the lake, across the the Rocca di Angera and over/around Arona. Down and along the slope are goats and donkeys, plus a cafe near the top with adjacent childrens play area. There was some sort of "holistic" encampment spread over the grassed area and it was all very calm! There's plenty of seating, shade and a cooling breeze. Couldn't find any info regarding the site as I walked round but there are information panels giving plant information plus a panoramic map detailing points of interest on and around the lake. If you've got binoculars then remember to take them with you. Oh - and it's free!

I have made this part of my morning walk rout. It is wonderful to be able to walk up or down depending which way I go. The view is to die for and the whole area is peaceful. Full of history if you really take time to look around.

Well worth a visit, if its sunny even better, the views from here are excellent, dont forget your camera. Also a nice cafe, for snacks tea coffee, small play area for the kids, and toilet facilities.

Really a wonderful place to take in the views of Arona and Lake Maggiore as well as take in some history. No better place to sit on a beautiful day anywhere in Arona other than the possibly the "Speakeasy" enjoying one of their many specialty drinks!
