Lake Orta or Cusio is to the west of lake
just behind Mount Mottarone.
The most western of
Italian lakes, lake Orta has only one river that flows out at
the Northern end: the river Nigolia which flows into the
Strona river and together with the Toce river reach lake
The “Riviera”, this is the old name for this part of the
lake, had its capital in Orta; but the history of the lake
started long before this period, in the IV c.
when Giulio and his brother Giuliano arrived here and then
through the centuries with the power of the prince-bishops
and a certain peace and quite.

official English speaking guides. We work with small groups,
familis with children, travel groups, associations.....

guided......you will discover a new world!!!
