Orta San Giulio & Trenitalia

It appears from the Michelin map that a train runs north/south to Orta San Giulio.
In navigating the Trenitalia site, what station name would I enter if for example I was traveling from Novara to Orta. It is unclear to me on their site. Thank you.

A quick search on Google found this on the local authority's web site:
www.comune.ortasangiulio.no.it/ComTrasporti.asp
The station is Orta-Miasino.

A quick word of advice: If you're planning on staying in Orta San Giulio this summer, bring a lot of bug spray. We were there in July and the "zanzari" (mosquitoes) were swarming. Locals said it had been like that all summer.

The station is quite small and several miles away from the Orta San Giulio itself, and the route between the two is hilly. A generous local person offered me a ride into town so that I didn't have to wait for a taxi, and going back I booked a taxi. This was 15 years ago, so I really don't know about the current situation re taxis or buses, but I'm sure the station itself hasn't moved!
