Small island well on the tourist trail ! (so busy)

Main interest is the Basilica di San Giulio, which has interesting wall frescos, there is also a short (800m) path around the island with nice views.

Worth visiting, but only allow an hour at most.

I loved to visit the small isle with a deep respectful silence. I’d like to visit it again in the future .
A little advice for the wonderful church… it will be more fascinated with classical music surround

Monday mornings the Basilica is closed so basically all sights are too. There is a 15-20 minute walk around the island, but you don really see anything. Don't wear shorts or short skirts. Honestly a let down.

taking the boat from the main square in Orta San Giulio to San Giulio Island takes less then 5 minutes - the return trip is Euro 4.50. The boat runs every half hour or so. Once on the island, you 're in a peaceful and serene environment. The large monastery dominating the island is not publicly accessible, but the footpath around the island is picturesque - incidentally it is called 'la voie du silence' (trail of silence). Make sure to visit the Basicila di San Giulio, a 13th century church with many (restored) wall and ceiling frescoes...

A sensational place that cannot be missed if you travel to the Orta lake. Easy access from Orta San Giulio, where from the lake front square (piazza Motta) there are boats tking tourists to the island every 15 minute for the cost of 4.5€ return ticket. The island is very small, there is a magnificent churchjust in fornt of the piers, and from there the main path starts. Very narrow streets, very silent, very ancient, the celebration of silence. Apparently there is a monastry in the island.
It's a unique place with little narrow alleys going straight down to the lake. sometimes people take the chance to swimm right from the end of these narrow streets as the water of the lake is very clean and transparent.
i left the island totally fascinated by the view of the surrounding villages on the lake coast, the green hills, the mountains at the back end of the panorama. Certainly a place to visit again.

Escape the crowds in Orta by a 3 minute water shuttle (4.50 Euros) to the island and take the short stroll on the trail of silence and meditation.

The island features the Basilica di San Giulio. (13th century) on the island many, which has many frescoes.

According to tradition, it was the hundredth, and last, church founded by Julius of Novara and his brother Julian, both natives of Aegina in Greece, who dedicated their later years to the evangelization of the area around Lake Orta.

Legend has it that around year 390 the saint reached the island sailing on his cloak, and then freed it from dragons (symbols of paganism); after the defeat of the monsters he built a small church devoted to the Twelve Apostles.

Regardless of the veracity of the legend, it communicates the rapid and far flung spread of the Christian faith in only a relatively short time.

The boat ticket costs 4.50 euros return so if you are a family it might not be worth it unless you are particularly interested in churches. There is a wonderful basillica with amazing frescos and a fascinating 12th century pulpit. Otherwise, it is just a circular walk around the island on a narrow enclosed street. Some interesting features on a few buildings but not much else of interest. One souvenir shop, one restaurant which I don't recommend, but maybe it is OK out of tourist season. The town on Orto S Guilio has much more to see.

In my opinion, the main reason to visit the lake Orta. Great frescoes in the Basilica di San Giulio. Amazing architecture, and views of the lake. Easy to get to from the Piazza Motta (Orta), local boats run every 15 minutes.
