Explore the beauty of the Italian Lakes on this walking holiday

From modest Lake Orta to mighty Maggiore and famous Como, the Italian Lakes have inspired poets and artists since the 18th century. In 1909 Henry James wrote ‘…One can’t describe the beauty of the Italian lakes….’ , and today, this beautiful region continues to retain its attraction for the visitor with breathtaking views over sublime waters, tree-clad hills, ruined castles and lakeside promenades.

This new walking tour provides an opportunity to discover these inspiring landscapes and to explore the countryside. During your holiday look forward to five walks which will take you from the shores of Lake Orta to those of Lake Lugano, see early villages and elegant villas, follow old tracks leading to fine viewpoints, and explore some of the lakeside towns. When you’re not out and about, look forward to relaxing at your comfortable hotel situated on the shores of Lake Orta.
