Poets and writers have described the Borromean Gulf as an enchanted place. It is famous worldwide for the beauty of its three islands, Isola Madre (“Mother Island”), Isola Bella (“Beautiful Island”) and Isola Superiore dei Pescatori (“Fishermen’s Island”).
You will be fascinated by the luxury and sumptuousness of the Borromean Palace on Isola Bella and the wonderful flowers of its Italian garden. Hundreds of different varieties of flowers and rare plants are waiting for you in the English garden on Isola Madre. The traditional fishermen’s dwellings and the atmosphere of the past of Isola Superiore dei Pescatori will remain forever in your heart.
Admire the fantastic view of the Borromean Gulf from Stresa, a little town with beautiful walks along the lake front. These walks, the XIX century villas, luxury hotels and elegant historic center (with shops, cafes and restaurants) make it a popular choice for tourists.
