The attractions of Arona (beyond Guffanti Formaggi…)

Begin your walk at lakeside, at the historic town square, Piazza del Popolo, with its medieval buildings or on Cavour Boulevard a pedestrian walkway.

If you love nature and history, you can go to the dominating, once inhabited, fortified Rocca: the former castle, destroyed by order of Napoleon in 1800, is today a park center, from whose razed grounds one enjoys an excellent panoramic view of the lake below. A little further away, in the town of San Carlo, is the colossal (35 meters high) bronze covered statue of San Carlo Borromeo, dating back to the 17th century.

Other exciting attractions in the nearby regional park include Lagoni di Mercurago, famous for its moist ambiances and Golasecchian archaeological sites. On the outskirts, the beauties of Stresa stand out, renown for its great lodgings and charming island studded gulf.

For those who prefer excursions in the mountains, you can get there by taking Expressway A26, towards the Ossola Valley and its smaller valleys (Val Vigezzo, Val Grande, Val Formazza…).
