Arona: sailing on the lake toward west south

In the southern part of the Lake maggiore, Piedmontese bank, looked to seen by the Fortress Borromeo of Angera we find Arona, perhaps the most alive and juvenile town that we can find on the lake banks. Arona is the most greater I bring some lake (it has center the Navigation lake maggiore), but also important knot for the communications road; not by chance to decree its fortune was the railroad in how much it is found in the point strategic in which the railway line crosses the line of connection between Milan and Turin.

The ancient building de Phillip it entertains the Civic Museum, to visit to know from near the history of the city from the Roman station to the dominion of the Borromeos in age medieval. Not distant from the city center the colossal statue of St. Charles Borromeo hacks him, been born in 1538 in the castle of Arona.

The statue completely in copper, tall 23,5 mt and resting on a wide base 12, seem to be very alike to the saint, dimensions of the nose he understood.

A narrow staircase that actually conducts to the head climbing is possible to enjoy of a splendid sight on the lake.

Thursday, for example, thanks to our fast and comfortable motorboats reach Arona to visit the large market and the quaint old town.
