Once back in Stresa, you can reach Baveno, where since several years, one of the most beautiful Christmas event of Lake Maggiore takes place: "Un Salto nel Passato" (A Plunge into the Past - www.unsaltonelpassato.info). During this spectacular event the old town centre goes back into the past and more than 500 people, dressing old clothes, give life to a truly impressive show… You have just to follow alleys and narrow streets to discover magic corners, secret spots, unusual works and to taste typical dishes, but you can’t pay with Euros, the only money available is "ul Franc da Baven".
