Set in a large nature reserve, the two lakes are perfect for a short break for two. Cormorants, herons and mallards are the most frequent visitors to these waters. Evocative the ancient village of Avigliana, with the ruins of the castle perched on the slopes of Mount Pezzulano.

5. The castles of the Canavese

Magic and picturesque place, Canavese waits for you just a few minutes from Turin. Among its hills sprout charming villages and fairytale castles. Among the many mansions, we advise those of Agliè, part of the UNESCO site of Savoy Residences, that of Ivrea and the Masino, embraced by a beautiful park.

Some say it's the most romantic lake in Piedmont. To get there, you need just to follow the signs to Orta, the village that has lent its name. Orta San Giulio is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy: its promenade is a long row of nineteenth-century mansions and flowering azaleas and camellias gardens. If you have enough time, jump into the boat that goes from Orta to San Giulio Island, enchanting green oasis plenty very romantic views.

Great wines, charming villages, castles and towers: the perfect ingredients for a great weekend are all there.

8. Villa Taranto

It is the perfect destination for a Spring day. The botanical gardens of Villa Taranto, near Verbania, are the home of rare plant species, water lilies, lotus flowers, tulips, tropical and subtropical plants (visits from March to November). Stroll on the long tree-lined streets, chasing the waterworks of the terraced gardens or lose yourself along the twisting decorated path between three hundred varieties of dahlias.

It reaches the Piedmont shore of Lake Maggiore. We recommend an excursion to the Borromee Islands, opposite the beautiful Stresa. The largest of the three is the Isola Madre, rich in plants, exotic flowers, peacocks, pheasants and parrots. Even more incredible blooms are in Isola Bella: azaleas, roses, orchids, gardenias and wisteria grace the terraces of Palazzo Borromeo.
