Nice place with a few restaurants and bars (sitting outside), during summer season cultural happenings, boat jetty for all places on the lake. A bit crowded at lunch time due to day tourists, but especially lovely late afternoon and evenings

A small square surrounded by narrow streets. It takes you into the heart of this village, and is worth the walk. Get lost and find this square.

We arrive early Saturday morning before our fellows tourists....

The streets are quite and peaceful.

You have to park the car at a close walking distance from the center and walk the stairs to the lake and city center.

We visited few cities around the lake, this one was a definite winner.

Don't miss

Great place to spend some time having a meal, glass of wine or capuccino and watch the world go by. The place to catch a ferry and just a beautiful place to go.

Walking down to the shore of Lake Orta from the parking, you'll sooner or later stumble onto this little pretty square in the middle of Orta San Giulio. You can sit on a bench admiring the scenery and San Giulio island, have a drink in one of the bars on the square, look at one of the art galleries - it's all very relaxing, and not too crowded even in high season. In the adjoining narrow lanes and streets, you'll find a number o antique shops and little handicraft shops - one shop which caught my fancy was , if I remember correctly, called "A la recherche du temps perdu"....
