Lake Orta, Italy

Lake Orta is a lake in northern Italy west of Lake Maggiore. It has been so named since the 16th century, but was previously called the Lago di San Giulio, after Saint Julius, the patron saint of the region; Cusio is a merely poetical name.

 Its southern end is about 35 kilometres (22 miles) by rail NW of Novara on the main Turin-Milan line, while its north end is about 6 kilometres (4 miles) by rail south of the Gravellona-Toce railway station, half-way between Ornavasso and Omegna.
