SAN GIULIO ISLAND

LAKE ORTA - SAN GIULIO ISLAND AND ITS MONASTERY

 

Whoever goes to Lake Orta is irresistibly drawn to the captivating village.

The ancient village of Orta San Giulio faces the spectacular Island of San Giulio, a short distance away.

 

Its distinctive appearance is derived from the renaissance and baroque art featured in its fine townhouses and beautiful gardens. Attractions include the magnificent mansions of Villa Perone and Villa Crespi, as well as Palazzo della Comunità, which once hosted the “Consiglio della Riviera”.
