“Best in Arona”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Very nice and also the great view. It seems that we were dominating the entire Lake Area. The view of the Rocca of Angera is wonderful.

“Far bigger than expected”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Staying at the Hotel San Carlo we could not miss the statue. It is FAR bigger than we expected and he must be one happy statue overlooking the lake

“Go inside !”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The colossus of San Carlone or SanCarlùn (San Carlo Borromeo) is quite impressive with his 30 meters high. But the really fun is that you can go inside and climb a little spiral staircase and reach the top where enjoy a beautiful view ot Lake Maggiore. (Not for people who suffer from claustrophobia)

“Huge Statue overlooking Arona”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

There is a huge statue of San Carlone overlooking the village of Arona, just above the Hotel Concorde. It was closed when we visited, but we could see it was through the gate. It was huge. A great restaurant and bar right across the street. Can't remember the name of the restaurant,but it was great.
