or

We will organise a bus for those who need from Busto Arsizio to Angera for the reception


Angera (Reception)

The Rocca di Angera is easy to reach by car, following Lago Maggiore on highway E62, then Rocca di Angera. The location has its own parking.

If you come by train, the closest station is Arona, at which place you will need to take the hourly ferry to Angera

Things to do

Lago Maggiore
Lago Maggiore

Lake Maggiore is a large lake located on the south side of the Alps. It is the second largest lake in Italy and the largest in southern Switzerland. The lake and its shoreline are divided between the Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy and the Swiss canton of Ticino.

The climate is mild in both summer and winter, producing Mediterranean vegetation, with many gardens growing rare and exotic plants. Well-known gardens include those of the Borromean and Brissago Islands, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia Botanical Garden above Stresa.


WHAT TO DO

Isola Bella and Isola Madre

The gardens of these two Borromean Islands are bursting with flora and fauna: camellias, rhododendrons, white peacocks, exotic birds, tropical flowers and the largest Kashmir cypress in Europe. The villa on Isola Madre houses some beautiful trompe d’oeil frescoes as well as puppets and puppet theatres.

Over on Isola Bella our favourite parts of the grand palace are the mosaic table, the shell-studded grottoes and the Salone delle Feste.


Lake Maggiore Express

The Lago Maggiore Express offers you an unforgettable journey by train and ship. The daily round trip can be started in several places, and you can choose your ticket options.

Lago di Como
Lago di Como, Italia

Lake Como is a lake of glacial origin in Lombardy, Italy. It has an area of 146 square kilometres (56 sq mi), making it the third-largest lake in Italy, after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore. At over 400 metres (1,300 feet) deep, it is one of the deepest lakes in Europe, and the bottom of the lake is more than 200 metres (660 ft) below sea level.

Lake Como has been a popular retreat for aristocrats and wealthy people since Roman times, and a very popular tourist attraction with many artistic and cultural gems. It has many villas and palaces such as Villa Olmo, Villa Serbelloni, and Villa Carlotta. Many famous people have had and have homes on the shores of Lake Como.


WHAT TO DO

Duomo of Como and City Center

This beautiful cathedral is something every tourist in the area should visit. Whether you are spending your holidays on Lake Como or visiting Milan, this Duomo is one of the best cathedrals you can see in Lombardy. Admissions are free-of-charge and the outside of the building creates expectations which the inside will meet. If a visit is not enough, tourists are more than welcome to sit at the tables of the restaurants and bars in the square in front of the Duomo, in order to enjoy the delightful view and etch it into memory.


Villa del Balbianello and the Villas

This estate is situated on the western bank of the lake and offers an enchanting view of the area. It can be reached either by boat or through a short hike and it features a wonderful garden with beautiful flowers and plants. These embrace a building dating back to the late 16th century and create a combination of art and nature that is hard to find elsewhere. It is a must both for nature lovers and for those who do not want to miss out on the historical buildings of the area.
