The Railway is a masterpiece of civil engineering immersed in nature: a path that fascinates throughout the year, which offers the feeling of being part of the cycle of nature and allows you to enjoy the slow and unchanging times.
It is the most important center of the Val Vigezzo, located in the northern tip of Piedmont, between the Canton of Ticino (Switzerland) and Lake Maggiore.
Today the village is an established mountain tourist resort, known above all for some particularly successful initiatives such as the International Chimney Sweep Meeting.
Located to the north of Lake Maggiore in Switzerland, it is a renowned tourist destination, thanks to the favorable microclimate that allows the Mediterranean and subtropical vegetation to thrive and the presence of the lake.
The territory of Stresa is divided into four parts, it is partly coastal, partly insular, partly hilly and partly mountainous. The coastal part, overlooking Lake Maggiore includes the historic core of Stresa, and the hamlet of Carciano, the insular part includes three of the four Borromean Islands (Madre, Bella, Pescatori), the hilly part includes a series of fractions dominating the lake Maggiore and the mountain part includes the popular ski resort of Mottarone,
