Beautiful small town with a cozy atmosphere and close to mountains worth of checking out. Used to be an industrial town before all the factoies closed and became a ghost town with a wonderful small church and a great view of the lake

A very nice place to spend a few days to find relaxation and serenity. A lot of nice places in the town and the views and landscapes are amazing. You can find hidden beautiful places like in my picture. Worth a few day visit.

Visited the area briefly and wanted to check out lake Orta. We headed for the main town,Omegna, it was pretty and quiet. If you want a lakeside holiday then head to Lake Orta before it looses its charms
