Borromee IslesIn front of Stresa, the Borromean archipelago shows its pearl, Isola Bella. We start from here a swift tour among the villas and the gardens of Lake Maggiore. Around the palace, rich in artistic baroque testimonies, the green of an italian-style garden conceived as a great scenography: ten terraces placed one upon the other as a kind of "Earthly Paradise", where proud peacocks peacefully walk.
In the middle of the Borromean gulf, Isola Madre: its garden, deserving frame of a magnificent palace, is one of the most evocative ones thanks to its luxuriant vegetation and the variety of its plants. Particular climatic conditions allow the growth of a subtropical vegetation, formed by seeds and sprouts coming from all over the world. Isola dei Pescatori, picturesque viilage placed in an evocative frame, and the pretty Isolino di S. Giovanni complete the archipelago.
