LE CINQUE TERRE (4 hours far from Torre Pellice) The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, some km west from the city of La Spezia. “The Five Lands” is composed of five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park which is a world famous UNESCO World Heritage Site. Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The Cinque Terre area is a very popular tourist destination.
LAGO MAGGIORE The Lago Maggiore is a large lake located on the south side of the Alps. It is the second largest lake in Italy in the Lombardy region and largest lake of the canton Ticino, Switzerland. Lake Maggiore is the most westerly of the three great prealpine lakes of Italy; it extends for about 70 km between Locarno and Arona. Here it’s possible to visit museums and churches, castles and ruins which makes it the perfect place for art and nature.
LAGO D’ORTA The Lago d’Orta has been named Orta since the 16th century, but it was previously called the Lago di San Giulio after Saint Julius (4th century), the patron of the region; Cusio is a merely poetical name. Its southern end is about 35 km by rail NW of Novara on the main Turin-Milan line, while its north end is about 6 km by rail south of the Gravellona-Toce railway station, half-way between Ornavasso and Omegna. Its scenery is characteristically Italian, while the San Giulio island has some very picturesque buildings, and takes its name from the local saint, Julius of Novara, who lived in the 4th century. Located around the lake are Orta San Giulio, built on a peninsula projecting from the east shore of the lake, Omegna at its northern extremity, Pettenasco to the east, and Pella to the west. It is supposed that the lake is the remnant of a much larger sheet of water by which originally the waters of the Toce flowed south towards Novara. As the glaciers retreated the waters flowing from them sank, and were gradually diverted into Lake Maggiore.
