ISOLA BELLA

In 1670 Count Vitalino Borromeo began construction of his monumental baroque palace and the planning of the majestic scenic gardens that have since brought such fame to the island and that still today are constant reminders of the splendor of that era. The residence contains priceless works of art, tapestries, furniture and sculpture. The gardens are overflowing with countless varieties of rare plants and flowers and ornate tiers of terraces; they are a classic and breathtaking example of an Italian garden from that time. Isola Bella has restaurants and shops to enjoy during your visit.

 

ISOLA PESCATORI

The Island of the Fishermen certainly takes its name from the main occupation of its inhabitants. Rustic treasures and simple pleasures await here as you wander among the charmingly quaint houses, and explore the narrow alleyways. But best of all are the restaurants offering the opportunity to taste the freshest fish of the lake.

 

ISOLA MADRE

Isola Madre is the largest of the Borromee islands and the one with the most enchanting atmosphere. Here, living freely among gardens filled with rare plants and flowers you will find exotic white peacocks and several varieties of parrots and pheasants. It is a magical world, especially so in the spring with the blooming of the azalea, camellia and rhododendron gardens. Since 1978 the 16th century palace has been open to the public. Browse through the reconstructed rooms, marvel at the collections of family costumes, dolls and porcelain and don’t miss the display of puppet theatres from the 18th and 19th centuries.
