    The church interior

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This church in Arona was totally empty when i entered, although in the midst of the main street promenade. Suddenly you slip into this small corner of serenity and sacrecy from the lively street crowd.

    Arona

    Favorite thing: It was saturday morning and I had espresso in the hotel bar before departing home after spending few days on a business trip in Varese. Barmen was a nice guy and we had enjoyable conversation about "calcio". At the certain point he suggested me to visit nearby town of Arona and the castle in Angera. Well, this is story about Arona which happened thanks to an accidental hotel conversation.

    Fondest memory: Arona is small town situated on the most southern lakeshore of Lago Maggiore. It is strictly tourist resort mostly visited by citizens of Milan, France and Germany. It is best known by Sancarlone, the giant statue of San Carlo Borromeo and the beautiful medieval castle Rocca Borromeo at Angera, the castletown situated right opposite to Arona.

    Favorite thing: From Arona you can see the beautiful castle on the top of the hill, that is reachable by the boat, and then on foot. :)

    Inside the town

    Favorite thing: The main street is quite narrow, but very colourful facades and with extremely well decorated shop windows, a lot of taste. Wherever you point your gaze, you'd be seeing beauty.

    Favorite thing: One of the buildings that quite stands out and has different features from Arona architecture is this old German clock tower, facing the lake.

    Favorite thing: By the lakeside, on the quay, there is this charming walking passage with benches to admire the view. It is all covered with plants and makes a kind of a tunnel.
