From Trecate, Milan is 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Lake Como is 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northeast.
Vacationing in just one place, no matter how popular, will only ever furnish you with a limited view into the wider textures and qualities of a region. So try to allow a few days to enjoy Piedmont's other sights and attractions. Roughly 17 miles (27 kilometers) away is Vercelli. Set aside a day here to visit the Torre dell'Angelo and Torre di Città.
Around 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the west of Trecate is Novara, a regional city where you can explore Parco dei Bambini, Sacred Heart Church (Chiesa del Sacro Cuore) and Little Palace of the Paratici Family (Palazzetto dei Paratici). Castello Visconteo-Sforzesco, Piazza della Repubblica (Piazza Duomo) and Statue of Victor Emmanuel II are other popular places worth checking out for those who have time left.
If the weather isn't ideal, don't worry, Piedmont boasts a number of popularaters, indoor markets and art museums, that'll keep you entertained and dry. A good way to get to know a region is by discovering its history. So be sure to visit the traditional villages while you are in the area.
For those who like to get wet, this is a great place for you. Wind surfing is a common pastime and another great outdoor sport is rafting. If you enjoy the company of travelers of similar interests, Piedmont offers a range of specialist tours such as cycling tours, city walking tours and culinary tours.
At the conclusion of your trip, gather your luggage and bid Trecate a fond Ciao (farewell).
