The inside story

They look like regal and exotic vessels floating on calm and clear waters. Sprouting up like blooming flowers in the middle of the blue, the Borromean Islands are a true delight for the eyes. Their history is seven centuries long, but even today they continue to impress with their beauty and uniqueness. Little gems of Lake Maggiore, the Borromeo Islands are located off the coast of Stresa and Pallanza, both of which are in Piedmont, but very close to Lombardy.

Perfect for a fairytale wedding or simply for a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle, the islands are generally available from late March to late October. To visit them you should purchase a ticket and consider booking a guided tour or an audio guide. The options are endless! Transformed from a rock to a flowering oasis, Isola Bella is entirely occupied by the Italian garden of Palazzo Borromeo, a Baroque masterpiece. A unique mansion with valuable furniture and an exceptional botanical garden are the surprises housed by Isola Madre.
