Ispra is a beautiful lakeside municipality overlooking the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore (about 130 km from Torino).
Certainly tourism in Ispra is not a recent phenomenon; in fact, the superb gardens of the great noble residences from the 1800’s embellish the entire surrounding area.
Another traditional and age-old activity was the extraction and processing of limestone, as shown by the obvious signs of the white gashes in the sides of the hill and four of the kilns once used to process quicklime.
Lastly, Ispra is characterised by its long lakeshore development. The coast can almost be entirely walked along a section of pedestrian precinct, which is equipped with facilities.
