About the neighbourhood
Stresa is the most important town in the Italian part of Lake Maggiore, evident in the elaborate hotel facades that line the lakefront promenade, once a favoured holiday spot for the nobility, rich and famous. Nowadays it attracts visitors from all over the world, drawn by the alpine climate, the upmarket ambience and the many gardens and palaces which can be visited; including the 3 Borromean Islands of Pescatori, Madre and Bella. Narrow streets snake through the village centre, a maze of quaint restaurants, boutique shops and wine bars, perfect for enjoying an early evening 'apperitivo' while watching the world go by.
Getting around
The public transport is very efficient, with boats departing regularly to the islands and nearby towns, and the fast Eurocity train taking you to the centre of Milan in under one hour.
There is also a hydrofoil service which takes you up to the north of the lake and the Swiss town of Ascona, famed for its summer Jazz Festival. The best way to see this part of the lake however is by doing the 'Lake Maggiore Express' a round trip travelling up to Switzerland via the Centovalley railway and returning from Ascona or Locarno by slow boat... taking in the wonderful sights of both lake and mountains in one day.
You can also travel by cable-car from Lido di Carciano to the summit of the Mottarone mountain from where you can see far and wide.
