Coming from Switzerland-Simplon Pass: We advise you to continue on along the SS33 road, which then becomes the A26 motorway, and exit at Baveno-Stresa. At the lake exit, head right until you reach Stresa, keeping the lake on your left. Coming from Switzerland-San Bernardino-Bellinzona-Locarno: We advise you to drive alongside the lake, keeping it on your left, along the SS34 road and then the SS33.
From Milan: We advise you to continue on along the link road that connects the A8 Milano-Sesto Calende motorway with the A26 motorway in the Gravellona Toce direction. If you exit at Arona, you will drive alongside the lake towards Stresa (18 Km). If you exit at Carpugnino, you can reach Stresa by driving along the scenic mountain road (4 Km, not accessible to buses) or continue on to the Baveno exit and then drive back towards Stresa alongside the lake for 5 km.
