Day 1

Stresa – Arrive in Milan and Enjoy a Private Transfer to Stunning Stresa

The town of Stresa rises from the shores of Lake Maggiore with quiet cobbled lanes and elegant historical mansions winding beneath soaring peaks of the Italian Alps approximately 700 feet above sea level. During the first millennium, fishers and peasants lived along the edges of the water before the Borromeo family of the Milanese aristocracy made the region affluent and famous by the mid-15th century. Your flight arrives in Milan at Malpensa International Airport, where your private transfer greets you at customs. The family will travel along the scenic roads leading into the alpine forests. The pristine cobalt water of Lake Maggiore reflects the surrounding greener from the trees, the silver from the dramatic rocky peaks, and the colorful facades shining along Stresa’s waterfront promoting an air of elegance.

The streets retain the decadence of the belle époque and the legends of the creative community from the 19th century who enjoyed vacations from the bustling streets of Milan along the tranquil lakeshores of Stresa. The scent of nutmeg and cream emanates from a small gelateria. Locals sip espresso in the shade of Piazza Cadorna within the old city center. After settling into the comforts of a luxurious hotel, the family enjoys a vibrant welcome to Italy with a sweet treat. You find a delicious gelateria close to the lapping waters of the lake. The interior carries the aromas of vanilla, chocolate, and raspberries. The kids get excited about the different flavors ranging from decadent confections to bright fruits.
