  • Island in Lake Maggiore near Stresa. Entirely comprised of botanical gardens - a lovely walk and interesting collection of exotic birds.

  • Beautiful island with beautiful gardens and breathtaking views of the lake. Definitely recommend the trip. There is a restaurant on the island or bring your own picnic.

  • Lovely island in the middle of lake Maggiore which is a perfect example of how humans and nature can live together. The palace itself it's a great example of the Italian baroque. While the garden showcases many varieties of exotic plants and flowers. One of the most impressive is the Japanese cypressum behind the villa. I really loved also the peacocks and the fagians strolling around the park and used to the human presence
  • It's wonderful, you should visit it. A lot of different plants from all over the world.
