Let your holiday go to the birds on Isola Madre in Lake Maggiore, home to one of Italy’s oldest botanical gardens, known for its rare subtropical flowers and colourful fowl. On Isola Bella, the closest island to mainland Stresa hotels, tour the lavish palace and imagine yourself waltzing in the party room or mastering piano in the music room (yes, there are entire rooms for these things).
Want to really “elevate” your holiday? Head up to Italy’s “natural balcony” on the Mottarone Mountain Cable Car. From your 360-degree view, see if you can find all seven visible lakes and the famous peaks of the Alps. Liven up your return trip by hiking, biking or skiing down—it’s sure to be a good story.
You’ll fly into Malpensa International (MXP) or Linate Airport (LIN) in Milan, Italy—which is lucky for you! Book Milan accommodation for a couple of nights, and when you’re done ogling the Duomo di Milano and world-famous art, hop a train to Stresa. Check in to your Stresa accommodation, pick up a bicycle rental and get peddling like a local. The town is small enough to explore on foot too, but there’s so much to see, you may want to score one of Wotif’s awesome car hire deals, at least for a day or two.
