Tips for holidaymakers in Artò

Drive down towards the lake to Alzo. There is a cheap restaurant "Al caffè dell'Osteria" at the city gate of Alzo, with sympathetic cartridge, lunch and dinner menu (around 20 euros including bottled wine and water) and on Saturday even live music. Al fresco. Tel .: +39 377 4730214, +39 0322969882

A small specialty shop can be found on the edge of the piazza in Alzo, with regional delicacies. But also for the daily need for bread, rolls, vegetables, salad and fruit, the small shop is recommended. In the summer months you sit on the beautiful piazza in front of it and enjoy a few bites with a glass of Prosecco.You will also find a bank with an ATM, a post office, a pharmacy, a hairdresser and a small privately run hotel.

San Maurizio d'Opaglio

What does not exist in Alzo or Pella, there is in San Maurizio. Ever important: a gas station. And at least as important: in the pharmacy on the piazza in front of the town hall, a very friendly, German-speaking pharmacist works. Of course, there is a post office, a wonderful pasticceria, a small weekly market (always Tuesday in the square in front of the town hall), many restaurants, bars, pizzerias, a Conad supermarket, a well-stocked Enotheka ZOPPIS - which also wonderful olive oil and regional delicacies ( eg handmade chocolate bars from Borgomanero: AUDERE) and a household and hardware store.
