Afternoon Excursion on Tuesday to Lake Orta!   

Excursion is full.

For Tuesday afternoon, we have planned an optional four-hour excursion to Lake Orta, including a visit to Isola San Giulia, with its basilica and monastery. We visited last spring and enjoyed it so much that we wanted to share it with you. We will be leaving the hotel at 2:00p.m. and returning around 6:00p.m.

The fee is $50.00 per person on top of the iCAS registration fee and covers the round trip bus to Orta San Giulio. To join us on this excursion, please select the registration option that includes the "+Lake Orta" option at payment.

Please direct specific questions to Joan Fisher or Kristi Hartsock.
