Lake Orta is a small gem located a short drive from Stresa: expect strolling in the small old town alleys and reaching the private island of San Giulio by boat to take a walk surrounded by silence.
This tour can be combined with private transfers from any location in Lombardy to make it the perfect day trip. Of course, the itinerary can be further personalised for a fully made-to-measure experience!
Our private driver will pick you up in Stresa for the short transfer to Orta San Giulio, a small town rich with local trattorias and narrow alleys. Enjoy a nice stroll in town before enjoying a 1 hour cruise by private boat to end at the small island of San Giulio.
The small island seems to float on the water and is dominated by the building of the former seminary that today hosts the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery of Benedictine nuns. On the island there is also the Basilica of San Giulio, the most important church in Romanic style of the area.
You will be fascinated by the narrow street, called the Walk of Silence. Peace and tranquility; this is what you will find here.
When back to Orta, our tour guide will leave you not before suggesting the best spots to have lunch and relax. We are also available to make a reservation for you.
Our driver will pick you up to transfer you back to Stresa at about 1400.
