The old town of Arona on Lake MAggiore is Ancient settlement of population native of the Liguria region.
Today archaeological findings give evidence of the passing of many ancient populations among which the Celts, the Romans, and the Longobards.
There are signs as a confirmation of this; when in 1162 Federico Barbarossa ransacked Milan Arona and its castle, today known as “Borromeo Fortress”, became a safe house for many pilgrims.
Today Arona is a beautiful city dedicated to tourism, and a favorite hang out for young people due to many popular nightspots.
Its strategic position set in the lower (southern) section of the Lake Maggiore, highway and rail connections with Milan, and first important city on the piedmont shores of the lake make it the ideal base to start a tour of the Lake Maggiore area.
From Arona the main road of the Sempione starts, passing all town and villages of the lake, arriving up to the neighboring Switzerland.
