    Lovely medieval town, never disappoints. Great place of an afternoon walk (and parking was free for the Christmas period!)

    Amazing place to explore. Did not know what to expect as we walked up the steep hill from the town. You do not have to be religious to enjoy this place. Think of it as a landscape park full of classical follies - I did. Great views across the lake as well. Highly recommended.

    We enjoyed the walk into town from the Hotel Bocciolo and took the ferry to the island. The weather was perfect and the view from the boat was incredible. The shining obelisk at the landing seems a little out of place but adds to the surreal beauty. We explored the church and walked about. It was a great way to work up an appetite.

    Very interesting church with a very aggressive tone. As evidenced by the eagle from the pulpit. Very interesting frescos as well.

    Piazza Motta is the historical center of Orta San Giulio. Under the arcades lining the square on two side, you'll find little shops, cafés, souvenir shops, a foodstore (Pan e Vino), etc. On the lakeside front, boats depart to other villages along Lake Orta and to San Giulio Island. On Wednesday monring, there is a market on the square
    . If you're lucky, you can rent some of the apartments overlooking the square during your stay on Lake Orta - very much recommended.

    Just call in here and sit for a while, enjoy the lapping water and watch the boats coming and going. Look at the lovely gardens, soak up the atmosphere of calm and maybe look at the "painting" on the easel of the resident artist.

    This is a lovely church on the way down from the top of the mountain. Or a bit up the mountain from the middle of town! Worth a visit.

    The space underneath this raised hall is often used by artists and also holds exhibitions - on the day we visited there was a large book sale. The architecture reminded me of a similar building in Poundbury near Dorchester which was modelled on an original structure. The surrounding square throngs with tourists, cafes and ice cream parlours plus there's a great view over the lake towards the island of San Giulio and town of Pella on the far side. The island ferry shuttle and lake service depart from the jetties.

    Fine for drinks and snacks. My wife went swimming and didn't have any complaints but be warned it is geared up for young families.

    The Torre di Buccione is the remnant of a 12th-century castle. It can be reached from Orta San Giulio by car - 20 minutes - or through various roads and paths after a hike of between 100 minutes and two hours requiring a good physical condition. The various paths are not frequented at all but are in very good condition. They allow you to breathe in nature and continue your meditation and reflections after the discovery of the chapels of Sacro Monte.
