Lake Orta Questions & Answers

Atlanta, Georgia

Do you think the taxi option or car rental would be the best way to get to Orta San Giulio? It is two of us going in late May.

Hi, thank you for your question. I presume you are considering to take this trip from Stresa which is closest. A Taxi usually is very expensive compared to a rental car. What is more, a rental you take and can use for the entire day. The taxi will bring you there, pick you up upon your specific request and wil cost you a lot of money. Enquire into car rental fares (Maggiore is an Italian company with reasonable fares) before you hire a taxi. Cheers, Duschan

If you are flying to Milan Malpensa (MXP), it will cost 100 euros for taxi to Orta. We only had 3 days and were occupied without a car. From MXP we took bus to Novara then train to Orta, the best public transport option and cheaper. There is a ferry to Omegna. There is a big car park above Orta S Guilio, short walk away. Good luck.

Both works fine. If you also want to see more of the area, having a car was great for us. The traffic rythm was calm enough.

Although, Lake Orta is a car free town, there are some car parking facilities.

so if you are visiting the surrounding areas I would suggest hiring a car.

You don't need a car in Orta. We came in by bus and left by train. Train service in Italy is so good and it is really easy to get almost everywhere without a car.

We rented a car. Very convenient and helpful as it is somewhat difficult to get around without your own car.
