Away from the crowds of Lake Como and Maggiore is the beautiful Lake Orta, a place that northern Italians keep to themselves. In the middle is Isola San Giulio (San Giulio Island). While today it is known as the site of the largest enclosed Benedictine Monastery, this ancient island has legends of dragons, saints, literary figures, artists, mystics and magicians. Perhaps you’ll find your own story there?
