Wishing Christmas at Lake Maggiore

13th – 14th December 2014

Are you ready for Christmas dinner, presents, relatives, etc…?! What about a short break before festivities?! We suggest you a weekend at Lake Maggiore to relax yourself and spend two pleasant days plunged in Christmas’s spirit!

We propose you a weekend out of ordinary: classic Christmas markets are a must and then step back in time to discover ancient works and old flavours…

Saturday, 13th December: Christmas Markets in Domodossola

Arrival direclty in Domodossola, the most important centre of Ossola Valley, where the 17th edition of Christmas Markets will take place: a lot of ideas for presents, typical hand-crafted objects and local products! Stands will be at “Matteotti” Square and along “Paolo Ferraris” Avenue from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday there will be as usual the market as well, for further information: www.prodomodossola.it. Late afternoon arrival in Stresa, check-in and overnight in a 3-star-hotel. But you can’t miss a goumet dinner to taste local products in a restaurant in Stresa town centre!

Sunday, 14th December: “Un Salto nel Passato” (A Plunge into the Past) event

In the morning, after breakfast and hotel check-out, visit of one of the three Borromeo Islands. By private motorboat you reach the “Isola Superiore dei Pescatori” (Fishermen’s Island), old fishermen’s village, where we suggest you a walk along the so-called “Via di Mezzo” and a visit of its small church dedicated to Saint Victor. Once back in Stresa, you can reach  Baveno, where since several years, one of the most beautiful Christmas event of Lake Maggiore takes place: “Un Salto nel Passato” (A Plunge into the Past – www.unsaltonelpassato.info). During this spectacular event the old town centre goes back into the past and more than 500 people, dressing old clothes, give life to a truly impressive show… You have just to follow alleys and narrow streets to discover magic corners, secret spots, unusual works and to taste typical dishes, but you can’t pay with Euros, the only money available is “ul Franc da Baven”. Late afternoon return back home waiting for Christmas…
