Stresa in a Day

If you have not considered taking day trips while visiting a central location (such as Milan) you should reconsider. I have thoroughly enjoyed the day trips to Turino, Pavia, Lake Como and most recently, Stresa. More specifically, we took the group to the islands surrounding Stresa. It's nestled in the Italian Alps with Switzerland to the north and west. On a clear day you can see snow capped mountains in the distance. The weather was mild but a bit humid... however, on the boat it was just delicious to take in!


The trip consisted of wandering about two separate islands with mansions and museums and gardens at both. Some of the most beautiful (and precise) gardens I have seen. Might even give England a run for their money.
