See Complete Slideshow Below



Full day (minimum 5 hours, without including time for lunch).



Isola Bella is undoubtedly the most famous of the Borromean Islands and when you see it today you can hardly imagine it as the tiny fishing village it once was. The Palace itself is full of ornate rooms which remind you of a past full of grand receptions and sumptuous feasts. The magnificent gardens are made up of no less than 10 terraces which slope down towards the lake as well as the rare and exotic plants which provide the gardens with colour from March to October. Isola Madre is the largest of the Borromean Islands and boasts a tranquil and enchanted atmosphere. It's gardens are a pleasure to explore: filled with azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons, ancient wisteria they are truly beautiful.


The day is completed by a visit to quaint Isola Pescatori (Fishermen’s Island), a tiny hamlet which, for centuries, made its living from fishing.
