Things to Do Today – No.1 Borromeo Islands

1. The Borromeo Islands. Open end March to end October.

25 things to do around Lake MaggioreIsola Bella, a splendid and grandiose italianate baroque  palace and garden is one of the most important and best kept examples of its kind to be found in Italy.  The particularly mild  climate to be found round Lake Maggiore has  favoured the growth  of a wide variety of different types of  vegetation, all of which have found their natural habitat in this area. Isola Madre is particularly famous for its  azalea, rhododendron, and camellia blossoms but also for the pergolas of ancient wisteria, for the Cashmere Cyprus, which is more than two hundred years old and is the largest example in Europe, and for the espaliers of citrons and lemons, for the collection of hibiscus and the Ginkgo Biloba. Both have Palaces to be visited. Why not stop off at Isola Pescatori for lunch. All three islands can be visited by boat starting either in Arona or directly from Stresa. Allow a full day so as to enjoy  a cruise on the Lake as well.
