  • Palace is impressive but the exhibits are not well curated. If nothing else there's too many of them in too small a space. Not sure the entry fee was justified.

  • Fee is horrific and nothing else to see on the island but the palazzo. Totally not worth it and a waste of money

  • This place is of timeless beauty, it is extraordinary and absolutely deserves to be visited. Pause to read next to each exhibited object, you will be captured by the details that at first sight the eye cannot focus. On the effigy of the Borromeo we read "humulitas", it certainly makes a little smile, in all my life I have never seen so much pomp. Very beautifull! Strongly recommended.
  • The palace itself is not to impressive, but the isle in total is nice and the garden invites to relaxe. In addition you can see some birds which is probably nice for children. So all in all, it is a very good idea to visit the Isola Madre.
