We meet in the main square of Orta which you can reach by car, where there are the main docks (instructions will be given) so you can unload your luggage. We then drive the car to the garage, which is 400m away and park the car. We then cross to the island by private boat or public transport.
Whether you arrive with your own car/s, a rental or a taxi, you can access directly the main square of Orta San Giulio, Piazza Motta, (inside the ZTL, Traffic Limited Zone), parking on the left entering the piazza, where you can unload your luggage directly in front of the wharf where our boat (& the taxi boats) are moored. Access is permitted only from 7am to 10am, 2pm to 4pm and from 6pm to 8pm. Parking in the square is limited to 30m. We meet our guests in Piazza Motta, help unload, park their car in our garage, drive back with ours and then accompany them across the 400m stretch of water to the island either in our boat or (depending on luggage &/weather conditions) or with the public transport taxi boats. Please try and arrive ideally around 3pm.
To drive directly to Piazza Motta, after the Orta roundabout, turn the first left past Villa Crespi and go down Via Fava coasting the lake. Near the end, in Via Giovanetti, the road gets quite narrow, but don’t worry, all cars pass. Please follow the map and not Google otherwise you’ll end up in the cemetery above Orta.
If arriving at a time that does not permit access to Piazza Motta, at the Orta roundabaout drive straight along Via Panoramica, go past our garage on the left, till you arrive in a parking area that is a dead-end. Next to the bus stop, Temporary Parking spaces are available for unloading (30m). Piazza Motta is 50m away down a stone footpath.
