The Province of Verbano Cusio Ossola is Piedmont's natural paradise famous for the beautiful western banks of Lake Maggiore, northern part of Lake Orta and the smallest Lake Mergozzo. Verbania, Stresa, Cannero Riviera and Cannobio are the most popular regional resorts. The Borromean Islands are in all excursion itineraries thanks to the rustically charming Isola Pescatori and the baroque Isola Bella.
The Ossola Valley is not only a great trekking destination, but a cultural one as well, with the UNESCO protected sites of Santissima Trinità di Ghiffa and the Calvario di Domodossola. Valle Vigezzo is called the Valley of the Painters, with the old frescoes and local architecture to be toured. The natural reserves Veglia Devero and Parco Nazionale Val Grande provide trekkers with some of the most beautiful Alpine landscapes.
