Lake Maggiore and the Borromee Islands

Region: Milan and the Lakes
Monuments: Isola Bella Isola Bella - Isola Madre - Isola Pescatori

From Stesa take a boat ride to the Borromee Islands, named after the family who developed them during the 17th century.

Isola Bella is the most beautiful. Visit the stately family home with its magnificent collection of furnishings and masterpieces and its terraced “Italian” garden. Napoleon stayed here and Mussolini met here with British and French officials in 1935.

Isola Madre is the largest of the three islands. Its exotic gardens, where white peacocks, parrots and pheasants roam free, giving it the atmosphere of a tropical island. You can visit the 16th century palace which houses period furniture and an exhibition of Puppet Theaters from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Isola Pescatori is as its name suggests - an island inhabited by fishermen. Delightfully simple, there are a number of seafood restaurants where you can eat the local catch.
