The Island of San Giulio is settled in the middle of the Lake d'Orta. It's a pearl and a paradise for those who are seeking for meditation and beautiful sceneries. Almost all the island is occupied from a monastery. It's a short walk around. I was seducted by the silence (it's a place of meditation) and the sound of the wind. I highly recommend to those looking for it. It's a place that gave to me a recharge of Joy and senerity as never happened anywhere else before. I recommend to arrive early in the morning as to avoid the descend of the tourists. The narrow streets have labels with scripts in many languages helping us to appreciate the nature and who we are.
