The Hidden Treasures of Lake Orta

We invite you to discover the harmonious symphony of Lake Orta, accompanied by art historian Cosetta dal Cin. She will guide you in an immersive experience by boat and on foot, through the secrets and beauty of one of the most romantic lakes in Italy.

Set sail aboard one of the lake’s historic boats to reach the pastel-colored villages of Lake Orta. Discover romantic hidden corners, ancient engravings, elegant baroque doors, and enchanting gardens.

The tour continues with the magical island of San Giulio.  Known as the island of silence, it remains the true and ancient heart of Lake Orta. Here you can walk the romantic "Way of Meditation»: a short walk takes place around the Benedictine Monastery in which sixty cloistered nuns currently reside: it is not uncommon, on some days, to hear in the distance their angelic voices singing in choir.
