Stresa is a town on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, in the Piedmont region of northern Italy.
Since the early 20th century, the main source of income has been the tourist trade; like other places on Lake Maggiore, it benefits from spectacular views as well as areas of historical and architectural interest. It is situated on road and rail routes to the Simplon Pass.
The Alta Langa is a less touristy and slower area than the Bassa Langa, known for Barolo and Dolcetto d’Alba wines and crowded medieval villages, but it boasts a natural and gastronomic heritage worth experiencing.
