The little square is the heart of Orta. The square faces the lake with all the boats to reach the S. Giulio island.
The square is small and on Sunday can be very crowded but even full of people is simply fantastic

After walking through the beautiful streets and shops, we came to the main square for something to eat. They have coffee shops and a few restaurants to choose from. It was a lovely sunny day and it was a beautiful visit

This charming piazza borders the West Bank of the lovely lake Orta right in the middle of the charming old town.There are plenty options for having meal or just a drink.Public parking is about a ten minute walk to the Piazza the return journey is on the incline.

This is the main square in town and a very active place. One side of the square is the lakefront with a small park with benches and lots of boats heading out across the lake, mostly to the island. There are lots of restaurants on the square and a few shops. There is a small grocery/deli where you can get food for a picnic and also a small pizzeria that sells by the slice. This is a meeting place for many groups and where a lot of wedding parties walk through for photos. It's pretty much impossible to come to this small village and avoid this piazza.

Its a calm place with many tiny streets that take you to different areas. You can eat or have a gelato or maybe buy a thing or two. You can also take boat trips from here. Overall its a nice experience to visit the center if you are in that area.
