Stresa is a small Italian village located in the Piemonte region with almost 5.000 habitants.
Stresa is considered to be the most beautiful inland of Lake Maggiore Immersed in greenery and illuminated by the reflection of the sun, which shyly reflects itself in the waters of the lake: there is no need to add anything else to describe it. At the same time, it is impossible not to mention the wonderful gardens, the rows of palm trees that parade near the shores of the lake, the historical buildings and the liberty style hotels that revive the Belle Époque.
A favorite destination in Stresa is the Park of Villa Pallavicino, an English garden with an astonishing view to the lake, very famous for extraordinary variety of plants and animals in the wild.
A place to visit is also Villa Ducale, built in 1770, where famous philosopher Antonio Rosmini died in 1855. Villa Ducale is the headquarters of the International Center for Rosminian Studies, which contains a large library with rare editions and a collection of relics that belonged to the philosopher.
From Stresa boats depart for unforgettable tours along Lake Maggiore. Visitors will have the opportunity to admire all the charm of the Borromean Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori where you can eat a typical dish based on fish, of course.
