Lake Orta and the view of Isola San Giulio are up there with Italy’s must see’s.
Staying in Stresa on Lake Maggiore, transport options to Orta San Giulio are limited in October.
Blue Taxi was perfect. Davide collected me at my hotel for a three hour morning itinerary. First to Sacro Monte for the chapels and the spectacular view of the lake then he explained how to take the 10 minute walk down to the town, how to get a boat to the island and back and promptly collected me in the main square for the trip back to Stresa.
Highly recommended driver service.
