The romance of Lake Orta

Although less famous than its bigger brothers, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como, the splash of Lake Orta has nothing to envy; its smaller dimensions make it intimate and very romantic. Orta San Giulio, the island that rises up out of the center of the lake, has quiet trails that run along the beach and docks shaded by trees, where drowsy medieval citizens with their stone bell towers and water-front windows once crossed. Lake Orta is a charming destination out of the usual, well-trodden tourist path.
