Easy to reach with the SP69 connecting Sesto Calende to Laveno Mombello, the historical centre of Angera is particularly interesting, with a splendid lakeside walk and very picturesque charm, as well as a small and active archaeological museum.

It houses a collection of very interesting artefacts bearing witness to the strategic role played by this town during the Roman period.

Of note is the historical and scientific research carried out on the artefacts found at the Roman Necropolis in Angera, leading to the reproduction of the ancient Roman bread, which is now being sold in local bakeries.

In the historical centre and in the neighbourhoods of Capronno and Barzola, an open-air museum has recently been created, a tour showcasing important monuments and facts sharing millennia of history: from the most important churches, starting with Santuario della Madonna della Riva, to more pleasant and mysterious locations, like the chapel of Sant'Ambrogio, the village of Capronno, at the heart of a network of mountain biking trails.

This means of transportation can, in addition, be also used to reach the nearby hill of San Quirico, from the top of which is a spectacular view: however, the trails leading to it require experience.

For further information and to receive a guide to the open-air museum, we advise contacting the tourist office, located at the embarcadero (Piazzale della Vittoria).
