This was a gem of a place. The day we visited there were a number of weddings taking place including a couple from my home town in Northern Ireland. its a paradise for photographers. Its a place I must return to and spend more time there. Beware with footing lots of old cobbled streets.

We wanted a less touristy lake experience and got it here in Lake Orta. Orta san Guilio is a lovely little town

If possible visit Orta San Giulio on a week day to avoid the crowd. Is a special place. And,after a stroll in the little village take the boat to go on San Giulio Island, or walk till the top of the hill till Sacro Monte to enjoy a beautiful view (and also to visit the church of the monastry and the chapels scattered among the woods

Not nearly so commercialised as the other lakes. In fact, not commercialised at all! Perfectly relaxing. Would recommend the 8 euro all-day hop on/ hop off tikcet on the public ferry.

liked everything, quaint narrow streets, good shops, art gallery, and restaurants and hotel was very central, visited San Guilio island and loved the quaintness of it, getting around by boat was good and reasonably priced
