News Bites -- Little Bits Of News From Stresa



Tourist News and Accolades for Stresa, the Pearl of Lago Maggiore



Alpyland
The recent rains may have delayed things a bit but now it looks like construction is back on track... for the long tobaggan track being built atop Mt. Mottarone. Weather permitting from this point on, the new summer attraction should be open to the public by the beginning of July. It is said that the experience will be like flying over the lake...


Entente Florale
Last year Stresa was chosen as the most beautiful floral city in Italy, in the category of cities with a population of less than 20,000. And now, on June 16, judges will revisit Stresa. This time, Stresa will be judged against the other winning small cities in Europe, cities such as Emly, Ireland, Beauvais, France, and Havirov in the Czech Republic for the grand award of the most beautiful floral city in all of Europe. The contest, by the way, is not judged on public spaces but on private ones. Therefore, this means they will be looking at the balconies, the gardens of private residences, the overall beauty created by Stresa's own citizens around their own homes. This award is quite an honor, no matter what happens after the judges visit in June.


Lago Maggiore Among Top Twenty Destinations in Italy
Readers of TripAdvisor have decided, and they have included Lago Maggiore among the top twenty destinations in Italy, placing it at number 19. Furthermore, they have voted that Isola Bella, the Parco Villa Pallavicino, and the cablecar ride to the top of Mt. Mottarone are among the sights in Stresa not to be missed. We are in total agreement... and we expect Stresa and Lago Maggiore to continue their climb up this chart.



We'll stay on top of these stories and post more about them as they develop. If you'd like to read about what's going on in Stresa, in Italian, bookmark Stresa 2.0, or become a fan on Facebook, and never miss any of the news and happenings.
