Let's build together your ideal tour package!
The Sacro Monte di Orta and its romantic lake..
So Piero Chiara, writer and poet, described it: "Orta, watercolor of God, seems painted on a backdrop of silk, with its Sacred Mountain behind, his noble promenade lined with closed buildings, the quiet square with sides contrite behind the foliage of the chestnut trees, and in front of the island of San Giulio, similar to the aircraft Dante's purgatory, hesitating between water and sky " In short, the description of a perfect combination of mysticism, art and romance!
Relax and discover the most romantic Italian lake! Luxuriate in an atmosphere that combines the mysticism of the Sacro Monte, with its chapels and gardens, and the romance of the Orta Lake.
Walking through the streets of Orta, Piazza Motta with the pier for the island, you will discover enchanting corners, arches and narrow streets that lead into the lake, villas and palazzi. And the island of San Giulio: the legend goes that this island, at 400 meters from the shore of Orta, was once a rock inhabited by snakes and terrible monsters, when Saint Giulio set foot on it:
walking the lake waters on his cloak and guided by his staff through the storm, the Saint founded a church, where he was later to be buried and
MYSTICISM AND ROMANCE!
transformed the island into the evangelization centre of the entire region. Of course you will reach the Island on comfortable boats, but the charm of the place is always the same. Finally we discover the nature and simple walks around the Sacred Mountain, the lake, very easy and affordable for all "shoes"
