What to expect

Known locally as La Cenerentola, or Cinderella, Lake Orta has an ethereal, unspoilt quality far away from the crowds. You'll journey along its shores during what promises to be a relaxing afternoon tour from Lake Maggiore.

While Lake Orta is the smaller and less visited of Italy's subalpine lakes, it's considered one of the prettiest by many. You'll be able to judge for yourself on this tour, which takes you to its most scenic points along the shore. There's free time to sip a drink at a café in a lakeside piazza or just sit back and soak up the lake's mountain backdrops. It's a very romantic setting.

You'll also catch sight of the islet in the middle of the lake, San Giulio, one of the northern Italy's best-kept secrets. And, if you want to take a closer look, there's an optional boat trip out to it. If you do, make sure to visit its Romanesque basilica, famed for its frescoes.
