FYI: Public Restrooms

Okay... I'm warning you in advance... this is probably the least romantic post you'll ever read on this blog. But, it's important information that deserves to be shared. A couple recently wrote, saying,
"Are there public rest rooms in Stresa? We like walking and there are times when it helps to know where the rest rooms are located."
So today, in Stresa, let's look at the loos. Truth is, there are not many. These are the ones that I know of:

This one, marked WC, is located just on the eastern edge of the large parking lot in front of the Stresa imbarcadero.




At the ticket office of the imbarcadero there is another basic restroom, on the side of the building where the tourist office is. It was unlocked on the day that I checked for this post.  .... (continued)

Down at the other end of Stresa, at the cableway station at Carciano, there is one, locked at the time that I checked it. And there are restrooms at the train station as well.

That all being said, I will advise that it is also possible to find restrooms at most every bar and restaurant in Stresa. So, while walking, stop in for a quick cappuccino, or buy a bottled water, and feel free to use the facilities. Another option is to stop in to one of the large hotels along the lake and ask for the public restrooms.

And how to ask? The proper thing to ask for is il bagno, the bathroom. If you are asking in English ask to use the bagno. If you are asking in Italian, you should say, "Dove e' il bagno? (Where is the bathroom?)" or, "Sa dove c'e' un bagno? (Do you know where there is a bathroom?)"  


And if you want to ask for a toilet, know that it is pronounced here as tua-let, not toy-let. So there you have it. The necessary information about the bagnos, loos, WCs, restrooms, toilettes, or whatever you call them, in Stresa.
