Arona, called the gateway to Lake Maggiore, is a town of great charm. If you are looking for houses for sale in Arona, you will have no difficulty in seeing your needs met, whatever they may be.

This town was a crossing point on the road linking Milan to the Passo del Sempione. Its tradition links it to the Borromeo family.

His home town celebrated him with a colossal 23-metre statue - known as the Sancarlone - made in 1600, the construction of which took 74 years. Among other curiosities, the Sancarlone with its 35 metres is the second tallest statue in the world after the Statue of Liberty, and at the foot of the latter there is a plate mentioning the colossus of Arona.

The present of Arona is that of a town immersed in nature, but still convenient for getting around in the Lombardy capital and beyond, being just a few kilometres from Malpensa airport
