Omegna, a municipality home to 15,000 people in the province of Verbano Cusio Ossola,
is located north of Lake Orta, Italy's most romantic lake. A fascinating glacial lake, among
the smallest and most characteristic in the north of Italy, 13 km long and 1.5 km wide at its
Lake Orta offers an enchanting landscape with lush forest vegetation dotted with small
villages all along the Cusio territory, rich with historic and artistic value.
Omegna, with its beautiful mountains in the backdrop, reflects in the lake and extends
along the Nigoglia, a canal that further north collects the waters of the Strona stream and
then reaches Toce and Lake Maggiore.
