This is such a great walk up and if you can not walk take the tourist train in summer. Worth the walk, take a book and have a great wine of aperitivo up there.

If you visit Arona, Italy and want to take in a breathtaking view then visit Rocca Borromeo di Arona. There is free parking or you can actually take stairs off of Arona's highway 33 and climb to the top. Entrance is free so it is definitely worth the time. There is a restaurant at the top. It is the sister castle to the one in Angera.

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.
