Stresa is a town and comune of about 5,000 residents on the shores of Lake Maggiore in the province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, about 90km northwest of Milan. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Stresa: Angera (Distilleria Rossi d’Angera & Rocca Borromeo), Parco dei Lagoni di Mercurago (in Dormelletto) and Museo Gottard Park (in Castelletto sopra Ticino). The adventure continues: take in the exciting artwork at Palazzo Borromeo, pick up a one of a kind souvenir at Epoque Antichita e Restauro, take some stellar pictures from Alpyland Mottarone, and step off the mainland to explore Isola Bella.

To find ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Stresa vacation planning app.

San Francisco, USA to Stresa is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from San Francisco to Stresa. When traveling from San Francisco in June, plan for somewhat warmer days in Stresa, with highs around °F, while nights are about the same with lows around °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Locarno.

Locarno's Mediterranean climate, palm trees, and 2,300 hours of sunlight per year make this city the warmest in Switzerland.
Step out of Locarno with an excursion to Cardada in Orselina--about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Falconeria Locarno, examine the collection at Ghisla Art Collection, take in the waterfront at Porto Regionale di Locarno SA, and take a peaceful walk through Naturreservat Bolle die Magadino.
