train service to chamonix mt.blanc

by muri98

We will be in Stresa this summer, and am trying to plan
a three day excursion to Chamonix. What is the
most direct bus or train service to this area?
I have gone online with Trenitalia, but cannot access
any timetables. Thanx!

Re: train service to chamonix mt.blanc

I have also read that chamonix is two hours by bus from
Milan, and an hour and half from Stresa to Milan.
It seems thats this approach is a possibility. Are the
bus schedules frequent enough to make connections
in this cirumstance?
Thanks.

On possibility is to go via Switzerland. The website of the swiss railways (www.sbb.ch) nows about neighbouring countries, www.sbb.ch, and shows a travel time of just under 5 hours, departures in Stresa every two hours. Change at Brig and Martigny. This mgith not be the fastest, but it is a very interesting and scenic trip.

Thank you so much! Music to my ears!
If only travel companies would incorprate this
when they plan Switzerland tours, people
would really have the ultimate Alpine Experience.
Seeing Mt.Blanc/Aquille Du Midi, AND the Berner Oberland.

Travel Tips for Stresa

Stresa - villas resort

by croisbeauty

A lot of beautiful villas might be seen in Stresa and its close surroundings. Most of them rises up on the hills above the lake-shore and the town of Stresa. Some of this villas, especially those built in the 19th century, are of exceptional beauty and architectural value.

Villas

by croisbeauty

This is the picture I took zooming it from the terrace of an cafe-bar on Isola dei Pescatori. There is a fine, probably 19th century, villa situated on the hill right opposite to the island. Many such a attractive villas can be seen al over the area of Lago Maggiore.

The Centovalli Railway

by SarahHardy

Basically, this is a train and ferry round trip to Locarno (a town at the Swiss end of the lake). You take the train from Stresa to Domodossola then swap to the Centovalli train. The Centovalli train takes you on a scenic journey through the 100 valleys which is absolutely stunning!!! There's a bit of time in Locarno and then you have to catch the ferry back down the lake to Stresa. It's a long day out but definitely worth it for the scenery!!! You can buy tickets at the ferry station, the tarin station or at the travel agents opposite the ferry station.

Marionettes On Display at Palace

by Mikebb

Our tour of the Borromeo Palace enabled us to view some very beautiful paintings, furniture, sculpture etc , however one of the displays which caught my eye was the Marionettes kept in a huge display case. Our guide informed us that these extremely valuable puppets were the childrens' toys. How lucky some people are.

Isola Peschatori

by ChrsStrl

The little island seems to be one great series of restaurants and lesser eateries that act as a stopping point for tourists as both Bella & Madre close over lunch. We walk the place in a few minutes. We thus dashed to Isola Bella.

This proves to be a grievous error as the restaurants on Bella are very limited by the fact that the palace and garden that dominate the island have left little room for other people. Human ingenuity outs and narrow streets and tall houses squeeze into any available gap. We dashed on the ship returning to Peschatori.

These ships also cease running for around 70 minutes over lunch, so you have to be careful about this as the thought of being on Isola Madre on a day on which it was crowded with only the one restaurant could be off-putting.

On Peschatori we head for the Restaurant Verbano. The view from the terrace is of the imposing palace on Isola Bella. It looks less attractive close to, as the greying areas of the paint spoil the facade, but from here we have only its beauty. The rain that came en suddenly as we crossed the lake (thank you whoever invented the lightweight folding umbrella!) had grown heavier but the restaurant terrace is canopied so one is still able to enjoy the view.

The sun comes out and the water sparkles. Small boats ply their way through the narrow strait that separates the two islands. The sun is hot through canopies big-bellied with fallen rain. The meal is excellent - wonderfully light ravioli stuffed with fish, well-cooked sea bass and a glorious fruit pie. The Gavi with which we wash them down is light and dry and perfect for a lunchtime.

It leaves us time to stroll down to the dock for the boat to Isola Bella - to be met by a huge crowd. It seems that both boats (to Bavena & to Isola Bella) are timetabled at the same time. Unluckily few seem to wish to travel to Bavena! Luckily the boat that comes holds 660+ people - but we stand crowded on the deck.
