Stresa is a town and comune of about 5,000 residents on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, about 90km northwest of Milan. Venture out of the city with trips to Distilleria Rossi d’Angera (in Angera), Parco Golfo Della Quassa (in Ispra) and Alpe San Michele (in Porto Valtravaglia). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at House of The Resistance, take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, don't miss a visit to Collegiata di San Vittore, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Monte Sasso del Ferro.
