If you're arriving Orta San Giulio by car, park at one of the two parking stations on the road into town and walk the rest of the way. The main street is shop- and eatery-lined Via Olina (later Via Bossi and Via Gippini), which straggles north from the square. A series of uneven lanes branches off it to the lake, while others wiggle their way inland. Via Gippini finally changes name to Via Ettore Motta on its way past the lakeside Villa Motta – a pleasant waterside wander.
