Description

Stresa, queen of Lake Maggiore, which with its numerous villas, parks, gardens, the flowery lakefront, the spectacle of the Borromean islands, make it one of the most important lakeside resorts.
Isola Bella is a surprising place thanks to recurring blooms and priceless art treasures that come together in a harmonious microcosm. Transformed from a rock to a flower garden, today the island appears as a vessel floating on the blue waters of Lake Maggiore as well as in the intent of its founder. Visiting this place will allow you to immerse yourself for a day in a bygone era where the Baroque taste blends virtuously with the green architecture of the garden, creating a union that has no equal.

Palazzo: The Isola Bella palace is a casket of Baroque art suspended over the water. You will pass through elegantly furnished halls with splendid views of the lake, around you canvasses by well-known artists, furniture of great value, marbles, neoclassical stuccos, ancient sculptures, armor and Flemish tapestries of gold and silk.

The garden of Isola Bella: where statues and architectural decorations alternate with geometries and botanical preciousness. The trusted gardeners prune, fertilize, experiment, preserving this enchanting place from the passage of time. At the gates of the garden a large camphor has been welcoming visitors for almost two hundred yearswho, having crossed the large gate, find in front of them the splendor of the Amphitheater which scenically occupies the central part of the island. The Baroque-style Italian garden is spread over parterres and terraces placed at different heights and alternates statues, obelisks, stairways and stone balustrades that create a scenographic system designed to symbolize the power of the noble family.

Opening season: Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Rocca Borromeo di Angera are open every day from Friday 20 March to Sunday 25 October 2015.
Visiting hours: Every day from 9.00 to 17.30 (last admission).
